28 @ 66F Tasting Notes:
Has a nice crisp flavor with a bit of tartness. The Blackberry is complementary.
3 Gallons Apple Juice
30 ounces of Frozen organic Blackberries
First add Blackberries...Blackberries were thawed and soaked in vodka for 5 minutes, I poured off most of the Vodka and funneled them into the carboy
Next add as much apple juice as you think will fit in your carboy without exploding...Mine was unfiltered 100% apple juice, no additives, no concentrate, no potassium sorbate.
I rehydrated the Safale 04 yeast and added it, I covered the carboy for the first day with Sanitized Aluminum Foil...but that was blown off by day 2 and I left the top of the carboy uncovered for 2 days. It was pumping off so much CO2 it didn't matter...there is no infection in this one
This was a big hit at a party I just had. People loved it. It reminds me a bit of Edwort's applewine slightly, but the Blackberries add a nice flavor to it.
