  • 1 gallon oak or walnut leaves
  • 2 lb sugar
  • 2 tsp citric acid
  • 1 gallon water

bring 6 pints of water to boil and dissolve the sugar in it.when sugar is fully dissolved pour ,still boiling, over leaves. let sit overnight and the next day strain into a fermenting jar. add citric acid,nutrient and yeast.shake well. top up with cold water. let it ferment until finished. rack when clear and again in 2 months.
