[nafex] elderberry goo

Bumper crop of elderberries this year, (but almost no grapes) so Im turning a
lot of the berries into wine.  Now my question is this.  Whenever I make wine
out of elderberries I get a green goo, almost as sticky as glue, & it deposits
on all of the winemaking glasswear & the strainer bag....  Seems like some sort
of tannic compound.  What is it & is there anyway to avoid producing it, &
anyway to get it off short of scraping or alcohol..

These berries are from bear creek, I believe they are York, & suckering
profusely which we are gladly spreading around our various plantings.
