Fancy a brew?
No, not that type of brew..it was another way of using up our massive fruit harvest. We've made 1 demijohn of plum wine, and 5 of apple wine. these have been fermenting for the last week in big buckets, last night was time for the first filtering into demijohns, and now they're happily bubbling away in the larder. Don't know whether it'll actually be any good at the end of it, but we're trying! the one on the right below is the plum wine, its a rather disturbing pink colour, and its taken about 24 hours for it to calm down enough for us to keep the bung in the top and trust it on the shelf, rather than the sink.
