I was just at my LHBS to get the additional specialty grains. Not going back before I brew. I'll see if a friend of mine has some bittering hops like Columbus or Chinook I can use. I don't think I have anything like that at home. Otherwise, I'll use the Simcoe for bittering.
It took a while for the flavors to mesh and come together, but now they are very floral and tropical fruit. Very smooth, no cat piss
I want to sleep until at least 8AM. Anything above and beyond that will just be gravy.
I've found anything that man has to say about brewing is worth listening to. A wealth of information and he's entertaining as hell. I downloaded an audiobook of his from audible that was great. He's done a couple of Beersmith podcasts as well, mashing and beerfoam if I remember.
What yeast are you using? Typically a wine yeast (71B, D47 et:al) will ferment down 100 points. You should end up with a semi-sweet if it finishes at 1.012. If not, you can always backsweeten. You will also get some sugar from the blackberries. Watch the PH since you have added the lemon upfront. It could drop too low and affect fermentation.
