Looking for 12.7 Plato

Highway Strobbery - 3 boxes of oregon strawberry, 2 oz strawberry extract.
Fallin Cider- 7oz Cinnamon, 4oz B.O., 4.5oz clove, 2oz PSpice.
Aim for 13.6 OG and 2.0 FG Next time.
Charles Dickens - 3 boxes oregon cranberry, 1 gallon of Amoretti Cranberry puree. Might be worth looking into doing 12bbls in a 20bbl tank. An extra gallon or two of cider base, an extra box of cranberry puree????
What's Good - 3 boxes of Oregon blackberry, 2oz blackberry extract
Pretty Fly for a Cacti - 3 boxes HH Prickly Pear
Apples to Oranges - 3 boxes Oregon BO, 4oz BO extract
Mangoin; - 3 boxes Oregon Mango, 3oz Mango extract (unitanked)
Straight up - 4 boxes of Aseptic Apple Puree (unitanked)
Comeuppance - 4 boxes of havoc pumpkin puree, 2oz pecan pie and 2 oz pumpkin pie, not the best tho. Less pecan pie, maybe a straightup pecan flavor and better pumpkin flavor. The puree gave us jack shit for flavor.
