            Yes me too, have just picked up my first three demijohns from a fellow freecycler. Yippee!!! Only problem. Slight lack of space for my experiments (as pointed out by OH) still shall find a way to solve that one.

            If at first you don't succeed, open a bottle of wine.

                What about elderberry port

                2 quarts elderberries
                1 gallon water
                31/4 lbs sugar
                4 ozs large raisins

                Strip the elderberries from stalk, add the water, bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes. Strain and discard the pulp (compst heap!!)Add the raisins to the hot liquid also the sugar and dissolve. Let cool. Ferment to finish. Syphon off and bottle.

                This is best kept for a year before drinking - if you can keep your hands off it that long

                Although the recipe doesn't use it, I always use a sachet of yeast to start it.

                Happy brewing
