This morning I siphoned the elderberry wine out of the carboy and into a bucket, cleaned out the carboy and siphoned it back in. This got rid of a heavy layer of sediment in the bottom.
I also added more sugar, this wine is not tasting like the batch I made last year. Not sure what the difference is, maybe the bigger batch?
Anyway, it is
"wine-y" but not the heavy, sweet wine of last year's batch. We'll see how this goes. I'm going to leave it another two weeks before racking it. I hope I'm not making a big batch of vinegar.... ha!
