Elderflower Wine


Here's how I made my elderflower;


4qt. lightly compacted flowers

Sugar - about 10 lb.(adjusted must to 1.082)

5tsp. yeast nutrient

1/4 tsp. potassium sulphite

8tsp. acid blend


I got two kettles of water to a boil then turned the heat off and put half the flowers in each kettle - stirring once in a while for 20 minutes.

I then strained the flowers out - liquid into primary and added sugar/water to = 5 gallons at 1.082. Then add everything else and wait 12 - 24 hours to add yeast (Cote des Blanc).

Ferment/stabilize/sweeten/filter/.... as you see fit!
