This appears to be infected, it'll end up down the sink.

In the meantime, there's 15 bottles of rhubarb wine ( over two batches) on the go.

I have heard good things about the Mangrove Jack kits, so have stuck 40 pints of their Grapefruit IPA on, and 40 of their New Zealand pale ale. Having the malt in a pouch is great.

I have so much rhubarb I could probably make a ton but the learning curve / acquisition of equipment puts me off. :S I'll bring some jam to cottage instead :DD

Just leave it in a bin bag in the sun for a week, then bottle the stuff that collects in the bottom.

Easy

Get some 5l litres of spring water in one of those big bottles.
Get those tablets supermarket own brand you strikes baby bottles with (70p for about 50)
Go to wilko and buy wine yeast, 2kg brewing sugar and petolase. And a bubble trap
Take 1.3kg rhubarb and chop it up into inch long pieces.
Put it the biggest saucepan you have.
Add 4.5litres boiling water.
Use a potato masher (or rolling pin) to mash it up a a bit but don't pulp it.
Add 1.3kg sugar and stir.
Leave overnight.
Then empty the water from the bottle and replace it with the liquid from the saucepan.
Add yeast and petolase.
Wait ages.
Bottle.
Wait.
Drink

Davpaz must be Belgian - add some sugar and water, hang it off the chimney for a couple of months and there you go, rhubarb geuse.
