Yep - put me on the bite list too.

Unless, of course, you mean aaaapple and blaaaaackberry wuuurzel.

In which case you're still going to have to tell me.

Now I find out!!! I've been making and drinking wurzel for years.

PBF - dissolve sugar in a bit of water, stick all the ingredients in a demijohn, add sugary liquid, top up to a gallon with water, add yeast. Simples!

I just checked what I made the last lot with and it turns out to be apple and raspberry. Such is life. Oh - check the juice contents. Some have artificial sweeteners. It all still works, but it's never going to taste absolutely dry.

I've just put on:
1 X Orange Wurzel (with less juice but more sugar than the recipe above)
1 X Ribena Wine

This'll be my first time for both of these, so fingers crossed!
