    whoosp.

    So its has a bit of a kick does it.

    Note to self: Open bottle outside.

    Lovely day to be drinking it though. Friend made elderflower champagne and had to have redecorators in, to redo the whole bathroom after it exploded.

    just thought decorators are normally still decorators even when they redo it. Blonde!!

    I will open the next one with a big teatowel over the top and over a brew bucket; I don't want to lose any again.

    It's lovely. Even Mr Z has just enjoyed a glass and he doesn't like ginger beer usually.

    I would say yes
    You have to loose sight of the shore sometimes to cross new oceans

    I would be a perfectionist, but I dont have the time

    If they'd been in the shed for a year, then I'd assume you'd washed them out.....so they would be clean enough as long as you drink it relatively quickly.

    But it's always best practice to sterilise....
