Notes

Cane sugar is included to represent the sugars of 64oz blueberry juice plus 48oz pomegranate juice, converting their natural sugar from grams to pounds.

Yeast used: Lalvin 71B, 25g (5 standard packets)

The fruit is listed under "Steeping Grains" but is actually added directly to the fermenter along with the juice.
