Elderflower Wine Recipe

ELDERFLOWER WINE RECIPE

Elderflower Wine (Makes 1 gallon of Wine)
Ingredients:

Elderflower Heads 300ml (1/2 pint)
Sugar 1 kilo (2 ¼ lbs)
Lemons The juice and rind of 2 Lemons
(Or Citric Acid) 2 teaspoons
Grape Tannin 1/2 teaspoon
Yeast (sachet)
Yeast Nutrient 1 teaspoon
Campden Tablet 1
Water

Pick the Elderflower heads on a sunny day. Using a plastic graduated jug. Fill the jug loosely with freshly picked elderflower heads until you reach the ½ pint mark on the jug. (The elderflower aroma can be very pungent so do not use more flower heads than recommended.)

Place the elderflowers in a sterilised white polythene bucket with the sugar, grape tannin, and lemon rind and pour over 3.5 litres (6 pints) of boiling water. Stir well to dissolve the sugar and leave until cool.

When cool add the lemon juice, grape tannin, nutrient and finally the yeast.
Leave in a warm place, closely covered for four days. After four days strain the liquor into a one-gallon fermentation jar and top up to the neck with cold water.

The fermentation depending on temperature would be complete in 6 weeks. Rack off any sediment least once during this time. The wine will begin to clear. Using a hydrometer check the fermentation is complete and add 1 campden tablet.

Once clear syphon the wine into glass wine bottles. If the wine is too dry add either wine sweetener or Sweetex (or similar) and adjust the sweetness.
