So you always boil all the liquid? I thought id seen somewhere in th thread that you only boil a portion when doing a large batch? What does the second boil actually achieve?
I always make it exactly like written. There aren't two boils so I'm not sure what you are asking me. If you're asking why I pour boiling water over the flowers at the beginning, that's to kill critters and bugs and things as well to extract color and flavor. The boil that I do with the flowers also extracts color and flavor, and sanitizes the liquid and sugar before adding yeast.
