Elderflower Champagne - Alcoholic or not?


Its time to make the most of the last elderflowers here in the UK but where i always thought the recipe for elderflower champagne resulted in a non-alcoholic volatie drink I have seen recently on Hugh Fearly Twittering's River Cottage Spring that his method brews to around 4%. I don't want my guests to be affected if they enjoy a glass or two.

Who has a method and recipe to guarantee non-alcoholic elderflower champers?

I don't think that you can guarantee no alcohol if

there is fermentation. Sugar and yeast and fermentation mean alcohol to me. My Grandmother made ginger ale and I am sure that there was a small alcohol content to it. Never seemed to hurt me though. I just really liked it.
