I’ve been thinking about what to make next and I’ve considered something like a blackberry port or something tasty and sweet. When I consider the cost of buying enough fruit it’s in the vicinity of a kit wine or even more than the cheap Costco kit I’m currently fermenting and trying to make a port. Frozen blackberries are in the $5 per 400g (454g is a pound) and from this forum people are recommending 5 to 8 lbs per gallon or even more. That is more than and even getting to be almost twice as expensive as a kit. Is Blackberry that good? What else is in the top echelon for flavor? Hard to consider fruit over grape at that price. Can anyone convince me it’s worth considering some store bought fruit for wine?
