Elderberry Wine

Got a recipe for a nice black cherry burgundy? Got an opinion on a yeast that you just have to share? This is the place for you.

Have you made a successful elderberry wine? Or even a cider elderberry wine mix?

There is a loud on the trees at the moment and I think it would be cool to get back into brewing using them. There was a topic before on this here. But I wonder if anyone has more experience since on

1. When to pick them

2. How to process them. Clean, mulch and press etc.

3. What yeast to use

4. How long to wait.

There are some recipes in old books and in the river cottage books and such but I would believe more the experience of someone who has done it here

Ok I got the elderberries and the yeast. But I failed to get blackberries I needed for the recipe. Has anyone one used apple or grape juice with elderberries in a wine?

I am going to try make something with these 1kg of elderberries but I am not sure what yet
