Thanks guys,

Actually we celebrated last saturday with a lot of friends coming over.

They plundered my wine-cellar, but who cares.......

Yesterday on my actual birthday I took the day off and
we had a quiet day together.

Hope you have many more of them.

Always enjoy your blog and posts on WMT; keep them coming. (Between you enjoying the fruits of your labour of course).

I was just going to make a new posting on this.

I pity all of you who did not make this wine !!!!
I bottled a 30 liter carboy (already) and man it is great, really great.
Deliscious. It has a real good elderflower flavor.
It gave me just 33 bottles........

Fortunately I still have another carboy with 30 liter waiting
to be bottled :D

I am really glad I made this much.

Luc.. my elderberry is just starting to flower ..the buds are almost open..

I don't think I'll have enough for gallons of it.. but maybe just enough for a gallon.. or I can wait for the berries and do a gallon of those..

I know where there is another tree in someones garden.. so am going to ask nicely if I can have some of theirs too

Allie, that is a tough decision.

Elderflower wine is great during summer.
Last year i made 10 liter (about 3 gallon) and I knew immediately that it would not last that summer.
That is why I made 60 liter this year.

It is an early drinker.

But then.............
I make about an equal amount of elderberry wine each autumn.
That is a great winter wine. I make it port-style heave in the alcohol and a lot residual sugar.

Luckily they are all over the place here. So I do not have to make that decision. There are at least a hundred large elderberry plants here in the near environment. Each year there are far more as I can pick.

Tom:
I have not yet tried to dry them, but next year I might.
Maybe someone in the US could send you some dried ones. Shipping from here would be outrages expensive.

Way to go Leanne !!!!

How did they smell, like litchie (lychee).
That is how mine smelled.

What ratio did you use ???
I used 1 liter flowers on 10 liter wine, but these were
fresh.
