Oh that sounds fantastic! I so want to make this! Thanks for sharing - and thanks for reviving, too, haha!

There is one thing that concerns me tho: unlike in France here in Scotland it is still freezing cold, so i wouldn't really get it up to  a high enough temperature for the initial fermentation. Instead of using dried flowers (or pick the older ones in summer), could I just pick, clean and then freeze the flowers? Utnil it is warm enough here - which is soon I hope, getting sick of that weather. Any ideas?

also, for your ferment in the open bottles, do you cap them with anything to keep the dirt/flies/... out?

Oh I am so excited now. told the BF already and he just shrugged. grmgrmlll ... men... he'll be dragged out for a long weekend through the fields tomorrow, haha!

I have seen many types of yeasts that prefer a cooler fermentation. You may want to try this and keep the batch in the basement (if you have one) with a more consistent temp. for control.
