No reason you can't use the LBK, since sanitizing kills any potential residual yeasts. I made hard cider last fall and batch primed it the same as beer. After 4 wks conditioning, it was quite nice, but even better after 2 months. I used toasted oak chips soaked in 151 rum (to sanitize the chips) in the secondary for two days in a cold crash before bottling and it gave it a great barrel-aged flavor.

Is there anything I can add to give it more flavor... Or will the boo berry cobbler recipe be good enough?

Try brewing as is to see what the flavor is to start.

From there if you like it, then get another recipe and tweek it.
Just cant say what you personally would like or dislike.

The booberry gobbler is in my future batches soon.
