ABOUT THIS PRODUCT: (DB110) Imported from Europe, these Dried Elderberries have been cultivated specifically for the purpose of making wine. They are very easy to use. Simply prepare them by blanching with boiling water. Recipe and directions are both included with each package. Dried Elderberries can also be used in smaller amounts in other recipes to enhance the structure and flavor of other various red wines. The elderberry`s high tannin concentration helps to add body while raising the level of fruitiness.
DOSAGE: For making Elderberry Wine, use 4 ounces for each gallon of wine. For enhancing red wines, use 1 to 2 ounces for every 5 or 6 gallons of wine.
1 GALLON RECIPE CALLS FOR:
4 ounces Dried Elderberries
8 ounces Raisins
1/2 teaspoon Yeast Nutrient
1/2 teaspoon Citric Acid
2 pounds Sugar
1 package Wine Yeast
To make 5 gallons, multiply each ingredient by 5, except for the wine yeast. Still use one packet of wine yeast for any batch between 1 and 5 gallons.

I have used these berries for three years straight, I add them to my concord grape wine that I make fresh from local grapes. I add one bag to six gallons of wine once the wine is in a carboy and has been re-racked twice. then I let it sit for two months to flavor the wine. everyone loves the taste of this wine. big hit"Very easy to use" Review by Rob (Posted on 10/28/12)
