No brewing.  Just returned from San Diego & visiting the Maltose Falcons last Sunday.  Today we kegged the barrel vesion of the DIPA Black Rye IPA from the MALTS project.  Look for some of this next Club Night in Phiily.

Dump of trub and yeast harvest are a plus.  If you don't have the ability to maintain & control temps, a minus,

As someone previously said, work backwards.  You can brew a metric ton of beer, but do you have the fermentation space?

... and its stories like this that make me question why I still subscribe...

Evidentally someone who has never had a relaxful day of brewing with their best brew-buddy helping.

At around 110 dF, I fill my Igloo round mash tun with ice, put a Harbor Freight sump pump in there, and create a loop to the IM.  Generally I stir while cooling, but have hooked up a March pump to recirculate the wort into a whirlpool.

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.
