  • When I moved to the Pacific Northwest, I discovered blackberries in quantities I couldn't imagine even growing up. Also, almost nobody picks them. It seems a shame to let those berries go to waste.

    Someone else was trying that as well.When I bottled, I actually thought the Montrachet yeast

    have it where you...

    Thanks Ringobob, I'll try to avoid it if i can free up a carboy. I'm planning on doing the

    going to tur...
