Alot of the advice Ive read on fruit beers is to seconday on the fruit.

Im not sure what effect you'll get from boiling the blackberries, but it may end up boiling off the aromatics and the blackberry flavor.

i wouldnt boil the berries, you'll get alot of pectin haze.

I'd ditch the carapils, it's already in the light extract and 2lbs of crystal plus amber extract is too much. your hops seem backwards btw, cascade is generally a finishing hop, while magnum is almost exclusively used for bittering (fairly mild aroma/flavor)
