  • Spread both sides of each strip of toast with fresh yeast and drop into strained liquid.
  • Lightly cover jar with a piece of muslin and store in a cool, safe place for 1 week.
  • Strain the liquid after 1 week and store in an airtight container for 3 weeks., then open and strain for a third time.
  • Store in an airtight container for a further 1 month.
  • Finally, open and strain for the fourth and last time, then bottle as wine and cork.
  • The wine may now be chilled and served as normal, however, the longer it is left, the more mature it will become, so serve when it suits you.
