Hello Good Folks,
This morning I took my very reluctant eleven year old son out to gather elderberries. Together we filled seven five gallon buckets with the berry heads. I used two of them today to make a double batch of wine.
Actally, it is still cooling all these hours later. So I decided to ask a question. The recipe does not give any SG or FG or any hint of using a hyrometer.
So just for kicks should I begin my batch with readings? Or just let the chips fall where they may without a reading or readings? After all, it is going to take a year anyhow to age this stuff, or so most of the elderberry wine recipes say.
I still have FIVE 5 Gallon buckets of elderberrys!!!!!! Maybe I will give some to the chickens.
