Dandelion wine update
The Flowers were removed today from the quite pungent liquid after three days soaking. I added ingredients and boiled the mixture for thirty minutes. The yeast has been added. Fermentation is beginning now.
Alas it will be at least three months before i can try my first drink of Dandelion wine.
I have had no advice from anyone, as everyone i spoke to said their Dad's made it. I want to try and resurect the art, and bring 2006 back into the traditional art of making wine from weeds, with a hint of the fairy magic that they used to believe helped transform it into a sweet alcoholic drink..
Further updates to follow.. (thats my hand holding it up the flower ha ha.No face pic today).
