Thanks everyone, to clarify, the only reason for the malt is to leave residual sweetness so

ferment the bla...

Hey all,It's almost blackberry season in Oregon, and since so many grow wild here I thought I'd
try my hand at blackberry cider. I began thinking about doing this as a wine, but the amount of

Sorry to bump my own thread, but after 2 weeks I'm stuck with a gravity of 1.028. I'm going to
rack it to secondary this weekend and hope that heating it to around 70 will start things back
up. Any ot...
