Psssst - Bottling Fizz

The Elderflower Champagne has been bottled and tucked away in the coal cellar.

The elderflower lemon and sugar solution had spent a week fermenting in a bucket (covered with a muslin) before straining and bottling.

Psssst ?  It is still fermenting a bit so I have been letting the excess pressure off. The last thing anyone wants is an exploding bottle.



  1. S we once had some home made wine fermenting in the spare bedroom in a demijohn. In the middle of the night the bung flew off and sprayed fermenting wine onto the ceiling. It gave us quite a shock.

  2. That's one extreme way to redecorate!
