Notes

1lb/gallon of fruit of your choice. I used wild blackberries that were frozen after harvest then thawed and crushed - add to secondary for about 3-4 days. Cold crash on top of fruit. DO NOT FINE! This is intentionally hazy and the oats were added specifically for improving the hazy character. Berries add a really nice color to the haze
