Granda, the recipes here in the recipe section are tried and true. Just follow the rule of around 5-6 pounds of berries per gallon. Keep your SG at 1.080 to 1.090. Ferment to dry, don't try to have it finish sweet. Stabilize and back sweeten to taste. THat is how to make a tried and true wine.

And if you do try the high starting sg in the hopes it will finish off sweet do so with a wine that will hide a higher abv like Black Currant or Blackberry. Last years Blackberry I did witha higher starting sg and a low tolerant yeast and it worked out well for me and actually quit right where I wanted it but another forum member followed my recipe and i warned him it was a crap shoot and his went way beyond. I would never try this with a fruit like starwberry or melon or even apple as in my opinion that wine woukld be ruined. I do like to test the boundaries some times.
