Step Three of the Elderberry Wine

Today we siphoned the wine out of the jug into a bucket so that we could clean out the sediment and bottle it up again for another 4 weeks.

I added more sugar and one of the crushed Camden tablets, then we poured it back into the clean demijohn and put it in a cool place to wait.  It's going to take some time.

John and I both took a quick sip, and it was VERY tannic, and a bit bitter.  I read up on it and that seems to be exactly what others have experienced, but that with more time and the sugar, it should come out okay.
