Hey all. I'm thinking of making this and have a few questions as I'm a noob at cider craft. Only made two batches so far. When you say sugar, are you referring to dextrose or do you use store bought granulated sugar? I want to ultimately rack this into my 3 gallon carboy as the secondary. Do I need to double or triple this recipe to fit into the three gallon carboy? Also, if I were to use my brew bucket as the primary, would the blackberries stain the bucket? When you pitch the yeast, do you rehydrate or just dump it in? Appreciate your help. I'm sure I will have questions later about backsweetening as I have yet to try my hand at it.
