Degassing

Last year I made a 5 gallon batch of elderberry wine and it was amazingly good - clear, bright red, great aroma and excellent taste. But I never degassed it. I was just reading about degassing wine and how important it is to do that. I am just starting to harvest berries for this years batch and I was wondering, did I just get lucky or is it not needed with elderberry wine?

Perhaps it wasn’t a matter of luck: wine kits need a lot of degassing because they are fermented quite quickly. If you made your elderberry wine over half a year or so, it will degas all by itself.

Time: the secret ingredient!
