Planning out a Honey-based dragon's blood for this summer. I intend to start out this weekend for a 6gal batch.

6kg Honey
4kg Mixed-Berries
1cup Lemon Juice
1tsp Tannin
3tsp Pectic Enzyme
1tsp Yeast Energizer
3tsp Yeast Nutrient (staggered possibly)
1cup raisins
EC-1118 Yeast

If I get to a grocery store before I start: I'll pick up a can of grape juice concentrate instead of adding the raisins.

I'll definitely be adding sorbate and back-sweetening a little to bring it up around 1.010 or so.


I'll try to update as I go along in this thread.

Sounds good. I might have to try that too.
Thanks

Started up the brew this afternoon and smelt wonderful. I did finally make it to her store to get the can of grape juice but forgot to the he lime juice; I suppose I can always add lemon or acid later.
