Just curious, really how much fermentable sugars are in fruits (for example, blackberries). I was using my BeerSmith recipe tool and it just has Blackberry Extract as a flavoring agent and on the calculator I am low on the OG for the range of beer I am going for.

Any rule of thumb type of advice out there?

Depends on a fruit, but generally they are 4-8% sugar content
