    Vintner White Zinfandel

    I think you could as long as your blackberry is finished fermenting. You dont want to add any sorbate to it if it is still working.

    Smurfe, I did use the oak dust. I have found it works good in the primary as well. I could smell the oak very well when I racked it into the carboy.

    Wine from fruit fillings.

    Yes, it was a blueberry pie filling. I don't know why she bought it she said it was $.23 cheeper per can. That is going to be a mighty expensive lesson.

    I told someone at work they could make Blueberry wine from Oregon canned fruit. I gave her a pack of yeast & the recipe. She bought Lucky Leaf instead of the Oregon. She said the yeast didn't want to start it so she thru in some bread yeast :confused: . I know this fruit filling is much...
