How To Make Birch Sap Wine

Birch sap wine
Start the must with a pint (0.5l) of sap and add to it daily (as the sap continues to flow).
Boil the sugar in 1 pint (0.5l) of water, and cool.
Boil the sap as this will sterilise it, and then allow to cool.
Place all ingredients in a sterilised demijohn (not the yeast though) fit airlock.
Wait 12 hours and then add the activated yeast.
As usual keep in a warm place shaking the demijohn from time to time.
Upon end of fermentation or just before, move the wine to a cooler place and allow it to clear.
Rack as necessary and add the campden tablet (crushed).
As with a lot of these type of wines you need to leave final product for 12 months to fully enjoy.
