I always loved the Elderflower Juice drink from Ikea, so I though I would make a wine with it and see what happens. Tonight we cracked open the first bottle (which was bottled in September) and it got really good reviews from the family so I thought I would share the recipe. The final result for me was semi-sweet with a unique flavor that reminds me of bosc pear and pineapple. This is for 1 gallon: 2 500mL bottles of IKEA Elderflower Juice 1 lemon GoFerm FermaidO 1/2tsp grape tannin (mine is generic from my LHBS, so it's not too strong) white sugar BM 4x4 yeast I treated this like a mead owing to the lack of actual fruit or nutrients, and used a TOSNA-2 nutrient addition schedule. Rehydrate yeast in cup with warm water and GoFerm as per instructions Take 1 (one) bottle of elderflower juice and add to fermentation bucket Add 3L spring water, mix thoroughly Add sugar to SG 1.090 Add juice of the lemon (do not add the zest/rind) Add additional water up to 132oz Pitch the yeast Add nutrients according to TOSNA-2 schedule Rack when SG is 1.020 When SG stabilizes below 1.000 (mine was 0.995) for a week, rack again Degas and add grape tannin and kmeta Once cleared, backsweeten with the other bottle of elderflower juice (I ended up using about 1/3rd the bottle IIRC) and add ksorbate. Leave in carboy for a week to make sure it's still clear, then bottle If you wanted to do this as a dry or semi-dry, I would add both bottles of elderflower juice to the primary and then use simple syrup to backsweeten if needed since the juice can have a certain cloyingness to it that wouldn't work in a drier wine. I would also add the lemon juice in secondary instead of primary since backsweetening with the juice adds acidity as well.
