I just made a batch of this yesterday along with a batch of 5 Day Sweet Country Cider. I used 4.5ish gallons of Honeycrisp apple cider (SG 1.050) and 54oz of blackberries that were soaked in 100 proof vodka for 15min. I added 34oz of plain white table sugar which brought my SG to 1.068.

Didn't bother re-hydrating the Safale US-05 since the packet said to just sprinkle it over the wort. I just sprinkled in and swirled the carboy well to get it all mixed it. It started bubbling along nicely in under 12hrs.

I started this on 1-7-2013, and bottled 1-25-2013. I thought I would post a picture so everyone could see, I apologize for the quality, I took them a week ago, and the lighting was obviously terrible. The drink came out awesome, but I pulled it from primary a little early, and its actually got an impressive body. Every other cider I have made has been thin, but not this one.

This has been the best cider I've made out of ten batches. Everyone loves it. Expensive though due to the berries so I only made a three gallon batch.

Yeah, living in Oregon, I am surrounded by blackberries, so that's where I get them. I pick close to 200 lbs a year, which means I have tons sitting in the freezer.

Nevermind. I recruited family and friends to keep an eye on Blackberry sales and there is one for .99 a pack! Guess who is gonna make a 5 gallon batch lol. But I wanted to make a couple other recipes like a Belgian style cider or skeeter per. Damn! Decisions decisions. So many recipes, so few bottles.

First time making cider here and this recipe looks great. How much safale us-05 yeast do you pitch for a 1 gal batch? The whole pack seems like overkill as that's what I usually pitch for a 5 gal batch.

I have this in bottles right now, will stovetop them tonight, will hardly be carbonated, but I think I'll be ok with that.
