field berry recipe

4 pounds mix berries
2 1/4 pounds sugar
1 tsp of acid blend
1/2 tsp of pectic enzyme
1/4 tsp tannin
7 1/2 pints water
1 tsp yeast nutrient
1 crushed campden tablet
wine yeast
Dont worry about how much sugar to add as what is more important is keeping a decent gravity. Dont go above 1.090. 1.085 is the best for fruit wines IMO!!!!! Looks like a decent recipe tough. As far as yeast goes, a good fruit yeats would be Red Star Pasteur Red or Lalvin 71B-1122.
wade took the words out of my mouth, I have found that the amount of sugar in a written recipe to be more of a suggestion, or even an acknowledgment that you in fact need to add sugar. lol

Also the pectic is usually used 1/2 -1 tsp per gallon, so you may want to use a little more. but the best bet is to freeze them for a day first (if not already frozen:D)

How many gallons are you attempting to make?
im making only 1 gallon batches for now. wana find the good ones first the 5 gallons. im making mango and a fieldberry one.
If you have another batch you want to start at the same time or within the next few days then by all means split the sachet amongst the 2 otherwise use it all.
