welcome to the forum.

a great hobby and a nice way to store the harvested fruits :)

If you want to use the blackberries most efficient:
wash them,
press them, (keep the skin and seeds)
boil the juice to sterilize
let the sterile juice set over night to separate the juice from the heavier parts
siphon the juice off for fermentation
use the heavy part to make a very tasty jam (most of it would sink to the bottom of your fermenter and thrown away later)
boil the skin and seed mixture with some apple juice (and sugar) to make your very own and much tastier blackberry cider :)

one fruit used to get 3 great products :)
In a civilized society, the only persons outside the dictates of decency and law are those who make it there profession.
