Try making a batch without boiling all the aromatics off of your wonderful honey and see if
there is a difference. Why are you bothering with juicing the elderberries instead of just
putting them into...

You need a bigger pot, the honey will foam up, we did 5 gallons of honey in a 25 gallon brewers

We grew the Butch Ts for the first time this year, they got over 5 feet tall in WV and very
