I've never made blackberry wine, but I've made other fruit wines.  The best site to use for absolutely any kind of homemade wine is Jack Keller's website.  He is the name in home winemaking.

I have been making beer for a long time and I am not to wild about wine. But I have come to like some good plum wine and the blackberry wine might have to make me take a turn in brewing up some wine. I think I will make a batch of wild plum wine and some blackberry wine also. I will use the beer stuff I got so I will make up two five gallon batchs. 10 gallons of wine should last me for some time. :D

I've heard that 5 gallons will fill 17 750ml bottles... That would keep me soused for quite a while.

I brew 1 gallon batches and am waiting for berry season to start so I can try this... I've got ideas for lots of batches to try, just need the time!!!

Sorry about the broken link, I put some quotes in the wrong place.

I've done a couple 1 gallon batches of wine, they tend to make 4 or 5 bottles.  I've also made some wine kits.  Those make about 6.5 gallons, that's 26 or so bottles.  Last me a long time.

I'm mainly a homebrewer.

 I made some blackberry wine once when I was younger. It turned out pretty potent, but I don't like wine. I don't have the recipe, but it was pretty simple.
