So today I tried to work out a compromise flavour extraction method from those normally published for raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, and blackcurrants.
And then I went and weighed all the fruit.
Enough for 3 gallons.
Right, forget the coffee wine: a bit experimental anyhow.
3g of mixed? 1 rassy and 2 mixed? 2 rassy and 1 mixed?
What'll fit in which vessels?
How will the yeast like being split 3 ways? Etc etc etc
L's just eased the problem slightly by claiming some rassies for jam, so now we're looking at 2 gallons again. I think I'll do one rassy and one mixed. Or maybe I should do 2 mixed.
Oh, I don't know. Let's have a vote!
[NB. On their own there's only a quarter gallon each worth of strawbs, brambles, and blackcurrants; all the rest is rassy]
[NB2. We still have several bottles of rassy in the rack - it's not bad, but not (yet) wonderful]
What to brew?
1 rassy and 1 mixed
