|Someone once said that the art of good wine making is to spend 70% of your time sterilising everything. |
Here is some of the equipment I need after I have sterilised it (including the table top).
|Once everything is sterilised I can start to strain the liquid through a muslin before putting it into my demijohn.|
|Karen let me use her cheese strainer to leave the remaining solids (of orange, lemon and rasins) to drip and eke out as much flavour as possible :-)|
|Here is the result - I had to improvise with a 4 pint milk carton to take the overflow. Hopefully this will eventually yield 7 or 8 bottles.|
|Actually, all this wine making in the shed was cheering me up because I've been going down with a rather heavy cold. Karen also decided very sweetly, to help me to feel better by buying me this bag!|
