There ism in fact, a May wine Wiki page (not to be confused with the
May Wine page, which concerns a musical):
It says, among other things, that sweet woodruff is mildly poisonous,
but 3 grammes (is a gramme a gram?) of woodruff per liter of wine is
within reasonable limits.
I'm sort of assuming they mean the dried herb, and I have no idea how
long it infuses. I guess if you're within that safe window you can
experiment a bit on infusion times.
