I have a gallon of fresh (unpasteurized) Blackberry Cider that I bought on an impulse buy.
Decided to make a Blackberry Ale for the wife. I did an Apple Ale in the Spring and she really enjoyed it. I'm a kit brewer wondering if the Specialty Grains and yeast etc...would be good simply by switching the Apple Extract/Apple Cider this Recipe Calls for with Blackberry Extract/Cider.
