Elderflower Champagne - first attempt
Thought i'd make the most of the few remaining weeks of having an Elder tree in the garden by shamelessly stealing the flowers and making them into booze!
I've never tried to bottle anything that turns fizzy before so i'm hoping it won't explode in the airing cupboard. Hopefully not and i'll have lots to drink just in time to help me throught the trauma of moving house... Fingers crossed!
After looking at lots of recipes decided the easiest was from Home Brew, a great book on how to make all sorts of lovely stuff to drink by Doug Rouxel & Sara Paston-Williams.
