Elder flowers in a bucket with sugar, ready to make elder flower champagne

Elder Flower Time!

Not an ideal weekend for picking elder flowers as it was raining. However, I was out picking elder flowers to make 25 liters of Elder Flower Champagne.

They are now in a bucket with the sugar, lemon juice and rind, water yeast nutrient and yeast.

Over the next couple of days, the yeast will work it’s magic, and hopefully create a great 2019 vintage.
