Country Champagne

We had an hour before our second Thanksgiving dinner and decided to make country champagne.  Country champagne is made by taking finished wine and adding sugar, yeast and acid and then filling up champagne bottles.  Unlike commercial champagne, we do not disgorge the yeast…we simply leave it on the bottom of the bottle when we drink it.  The champagne process takes approximately 6 months.

We had a little left over so Vaughn demonstrated the art of pouring wine from a 5 gallon bucket to a wine glass!  Quite a good skill to have.
