  3. Strain the must through a fine mesh nylon bag, stir in the sugar and pour the must into sterilised Jar. Top up wit cold, boiled water if necessary, fit an airlock and ferment out.

I don't remember if I dis it exactly as described as I got my stuff from local home brew shop rather than Boots.



If you use  Bramble Jelly or Blackcurrant you make a red wine and then you don't need to sweeten. Goosegog jam - white wine and then you can sweeten or not.




The view is much better from the naughty step ... Cool
How do you know if a jam has added pectin or not?  blink  Thank you for putting up the recipe though! Am so, so tempted to give it a go. Still got a demijon here which would do the trick, my bubbler and everything!  :001_tt1:
