    23L/5 Gal Blackberry wine recipe

    Sounds good, the only thing I would suggest is freeze other 500g of blackberries, so ice crystals break all fruit walls inside for better extraction, then add defrosted about 2 weeks later or ever 3 weeks later for second, for real nice freshness, I do that with my meads, it works really nice :)
