Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Here we follow Michael White, experienced forager and wild food expert, as he outlines the steps to take to make delicious nettle wine. Michael talks us through the process from start to finish - harvesting the tender tips of the nettles, the additional ingredients, fermentation, straining off the sediment, bottling...and tasting the end product! http://www.ruralcourses.co.uk/ An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv

mustapha supas You can use a balloon with a pinhole. Anything that lets gas out and keeps the bugs from coming in.

Couldn't you strain out the sediment with a coffee filter or cloth strainer?

I agree completely! You cannot call something ‘wine’ if it is not brewed using the base ingredient only; just look at grape wine (normal wine), rice wine (sake) and barley wine (Belgian beer). None of which use sugar as an additive medium for producing alcohol. I don’t know what one would call this, but it is certainly not wine!
