Huckleberry/Apricot Wine

The Huckleberry "recipe" called for 18lbs of Huckleberries. I had 3 one gallon bags of frozen Huckleberries (from past summers), which took probably about >6 hours of picking and cleaning and weighed at 9lbs. That's a lot of berries and a lot of time spent, and that's all I had. So I compromised and threw in 2lbs of previously cleaned and frozen Apricots. Well that was 5 days ago and it's been fermenting vigorously. This morning I opened the bucket for inspection and to stir and squeeze the fruit, and Wow! The creation is a deep blood red. The color and depth happened in a day and it looks way cool.

I'll move it to a carboy in a few days and will top off with Welch's Concentrate Grape Juice, but I sure hope this blood color survives.

I'll take a picture when it's in the Carboy. It not pretty in the bucket. Looks like a gut bucket with black maggots floating about.
