Cool, thank you. No hurry. I can wait till you're ready to post. I need to bottle some to free up a few fermentors anyway1.) I've made blackberry quite a bit, did a tart cherry experiment, decided it was good enough to try a 5 gallon. First time for this blackberry/cherry recipe.
2.) O.G. 1.128, approximately .5 -.6 lbs sugars in berries not in s.g.
3.) I plan to post my blackberry recipe as well as a couple variations. If you want to try it out I can post what I've made so far, blackberry and cherry variants. Planning a spiced one next.
