Hi, we have a glut of apples and pears and I would like to make some presecco using honey does anyone have a recipe?
Or suggestions where to look, I have been looking on the net to no avail.
Thanks
Mark.

Do you mean cyser?
Prosecco is made from grapes.
I have a mate who makes a lot and he recommends this recipe
If you want fizz don’t kill the yeast before bottling, add a slurp of honey and wire the cork. Make sure you use a proper pressure resistant bottle.
Do not use a flavourful honey as that’s all you will taste. OSR would be ideal

Errrr what’s going on here ?
Do you and Curly know each other ?
Is there something afoot?
Judging by Sweet Pea's earlier post and that one I don't think they are best buddies....
