No need to sterilize, or sanitize. I just rinse off with water. The abv will get high enough to kill anything I feel. This is suppose to be ancient and easy. So don't worry and take a lot of time to clean/ sanitize.
btw whats the dark stuff on the bottom of the jugs in the first pics you posted last night?

I'm guessing that's honey that settled out?

Yes. It's honey. Should it not be like that? How does one get the oranges out afterward?

Some people feel the need to shake to incorporate, some dont. Personally, I like watching the yeast eat up the honey a centimeter at a time, so its up to you. I personally employ a chopstick and a hearty shake to get the oranges out... probably the most labor intensive part of the whole process.

I did shake it before putting the airlock on. I thought Joe said no shaking, no racking, etc.

Right, shake before airlocking. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt. For the most part I just watch the honey disappear slowly over several weeks.

Ok. I won't sweat it. Do I need to wait til the foam retreats from the neck to top off with water? Should I use cold water this time?

I've read every single post and there was not one blackberry variant. That was the sole reason I read them all. I have the original going now but I also want a blackberry version. I hope no one condemns me for not starting a new post but this is what I'm thinking for a one gallon batch:

3lbs clover honey
1lb frozen blackberries, thawed
fresh mint (unsure of how much at the moment)
5 whole black peppercorns
25 raisins
1tsp bread yeast

Ive used almost precisely that same recipe aryoung, but with mixed berries rather than all blackberries. It wasnt my favorite varient, but it was pretty great.
