So I rehydrated my (slightly out of date) wine yeast.... and nothing happened. Flatter than a mill pond.
So I panicked as I had just strained the whole mixture through a seive, pressed the fruit through the seive to remove the seeds and put the seeds and skins in a mesh bag and added that back to the fv. Too much work to abandon to wild yeast!
Then I remembered the champagne yeast I had in the bottom of a recently bottled cider, so I gave that a good shake and added that, along with the rehydrated wine yeast.
It's going to be a winner!
