    Hi there! thanks for the recipe. I have dried elderberries and wondering if i need to hydrate them before adding to the first ferment. The recipe states to add them with the raisins. Do you mean add the dried berries and raisins in the nylon bag without hydrating the berries?
    Thanks!

      Place water for batch in SS stockpot with all the berries and bring to boil, then shut off heat. Add raisins and stir. This will sterilize the batch. Pour contents from stockpot into the strainer bag that is inside the primary fermenter. (Strainer bags can be stretched over the top of the fermenter). Add sugar to your recipe specification. Stir to dissolve all sugar. When temp is cool enough for yeast addition, (70F) add yeast nutrient, tannin, and stir to dissolve. Stir well to also add air (Aerate) to batch,then add wine yeast. Once fermentation is vigorous, about a week, transfer to secondary fermenter, being careful not to add any air and squeezing the strainer bag to capture all the juice. You can then discard strainer bag and used berries. Airlock fermenter and ferment out. Rack as needed to clear. Add Campden tablets as directed (usually 1 tab per gallon), bottle.
