Awful Orange Wine

It has been said that I have my crazes.  The latest is Home Brew.

2013-10-21 10.09.08In 2000 we were kindly gifted some wine making equipment by an old family friend and made some orange wine. One year later it was filthy and it was worse when we tried it nine years after that.  Acidic and awful.  It was enough to put us off wine making for ever or so we though.  Or at least 15 years.

Fast forward to a lovely autumn walk in 2013 and glistening elderberries dripping from the bushes.  A flippant conversation about elderberry wine and a week later the demijohns were being dusted, cleaned and de-spidered and we were off again.  Only this time I have gone completely bonkers.

As usual.
