Anybody ever try making Lappish Hag's Love Potion
Basically it's just a simply country wine of blueberries, sugar and water; left in a glass bottle outside to be fermented by the wild yeast on the blueberries.
Most of info online isn't that helpful; no real recipes, says the fermentation is done by an enzyme, and say to leave in a sealed glass bottle to ferment(this seems to be done to get carbination).
I picked up some fresh blueberries the other day at Wal-mart and decided to give it a try, followed the basic info I found online, used only whole ripe berries, add water, and then slowly added sugar little by little until it seemed to reach saturation.
Instead of sealing the bottle and getting a bottle bomb, I deiced to use an airlock. The wild yeast from the berries, seems to be fermenting along at good pace for such a high sugar concentration.
I'm not sure how good it will end up being, wild yeast plus high sugar just screams fusel alcohols and off tastes to me, but then it's always fun to experiment with something new.
