Fizzing Elderflower champagne...not yet!

It been nearly three weeks since I bottled my 'elderflower champagne'. I went to have a look at the bottles that are in the garden shed.
Absolutely no sign of bubble or fizz. There was segment sitting at the bottom of some of the bottles, but no fizz. Not sure what's gone wrong. I will leave them for another fortnight.

  1. Maybe not enough sugar or yeast for fermentation?

  2. The recipe did not require yeast, so it could be the sugar, but it did taste really sweet when I bottled them.
