Day 12: This Tuesday I sieved the elderflower concoction into bottles ready for the next stage of the fermenting process.
Sieving is sticky business! The sugar water gets all over the place and it can take a while to sieve every last drop!
The next stage takes eight to ten days.
This part of the process is the most dangerous where Bottles can become distended or even explode with the amount of gas released by the yeast!
I’ll let you know how it goes!
Thanks for reading, and keep wild!
The recipe used was from the Woman’s Institute.
