Elderflower Champagne

2 1/2 weeks ago we followed Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's recipe for elderflower champagne.

The brew looked liked this, as some of you may recall.

Well, today we decided it was 1 1/2 weeks after bottling (no bottles had exploded, so that was rather pleasing) and it was time we had a little taste.Gosh, it is nice! Very refreshing, tasty, fizzy, delicious. Dry with a very pleasant elderflower flavour. We made two batches, but may decide to make more next season. Cheers!
