Making the Elderflower made me think of other flower wines I’ve made. Rose petal has been wonderful though infrequent, bizarrely most rose growers want to enjoy them on the plant rather than brew them!
Rose petal 2010
About a pint of petals, (in this one I’m using a mix of varieties, the heavier the scent the better.)
6 pints water
1 litre white grape juice
Citric Acid (1 lemon)
Cover the petals in water, add sugar, juice, citric acid and a campden tablet. Leave 24hrs. Add wine yeast and nutrient. Leave for 5 days then strain into a demijohn with an airlock.
