Hi Aussiecopperheadroad,

There's no real point in running a fruit mash through a T500 as it will strip out any fruit flavour that you might be looking for.

Also, please pop into the Welcome Center and introduce yourself :handgestures-thumbupleft:

What you could do with mulberry is either make mulberry wine or process the mulberry to flavour a drink with some alcohol added and even carbonate like an alcopop.
Mulberry makes good wine and could add alcohol to that also. as the last one i tried was sweet wine.

I'm about to do the same thing. I have a mulberry tree overloaded and falling so thought I'd give it a try. I'll try to post what I do and how it turns out and hopefully you can do the same thing.

equipment: Was supposed to be the "Black Maximus" from Country Brewer @ Maitland but it's a copper condenser so not sure if it is called something else or mot.
