champagne supernova update 2...

the fizzing began and died off slightly, so straining began to remove the remnants of the elderflowers and lemon peel.

instead of the beautiful clear and crisp colouration I was expecting, it looks rather like cloudy lemonade, so a double straining technique was employed.

even though we are yet to officially test the alcohol content, we reckon the champagne is to be quite boozy as we felt a little lightheaded just pouring the stuff about, so we tried a glass to do a very unscientific sampling.

it really should be bottled for at least two weeks to develop, but despite the lack of vintage it actually tasted quite nice and pretty sophisticated - not bad for the contents of a hedgerow...
