I don't know about you, but the first week after a school holiday is always a bit of a jumbled up week for me. It takes me a while to get used to having the house to myself again, to catching up on washing and jobs, and this last week was no exception.
The only good thing is that I've been able to finish off quite a few things that were hanging around.
I've bottled the nettle beer and elderflower wine that I started back in July - I bet you thought I'd forgotten about it! And, to be honest, you'd be right - the demijohns got pushed to the back of the shelf and have been fermenting nicely on their own for a very long time.
I bottled the wine first and got five bottles plus a glass out of the demijohn. I also got a fairly big mouthful when I started the siphon off and I have to say, it's nicer than I expected it to be. That sounds dreadful, doesn't it, but my last attempt at fruit wine many years ago was not particularly successful.
