No this is only the first step you now have to move onto the apfelwein thread, which is over the 100 now, i think (actually 126).
Its a cracking drink, but a very simple one and i still can't understand why there is over 125 pages on how to throw apple juice, sugar and yeast into a container and ferment .

There is another apfelwein thread just counting the gallons made that is 183 posts.
That's some good reading.

i still haven't been able to brew this beauty.

brewing temporarily suspended due to purchase of new house.

i find myself crying to sleep at night and getting shakes that won't go away while staring at pictures of boils and malted barley for hours on end.

is this normal?

I thought it was outstanding this way. It's definately a luxury, though.

I've soooo wanted to make this for a few months now, but I don't think I've got the equipment to make it - I'm not sure how big my largest pot would b, but probably only big enough to hold 4L (maybe I have a bigger one), but I think the biggest problem for me is the crappy electric elements that we have... It was struggling to keep 3 and a bit litres of water boiling, and that's at full tit. *sigh* Don't have the money to get a burner... I guess I'll just have to keep dreaming.

Lol, underworld?? and yes I can say tit and get away with it, hehe.

I now wonder if I maybe could do this... I realised that I've got a big pot, that we use for steaming, it's quite tall, so I rekon I could get 5L in there... All I need to do now, is convert to metric (or actually measure in and use imperial ) and hope that one of the HBS around me has the ingredients. I have a feeling it might be a struggle.

I just brewed up this recipe V1 yesterday. I used a partial boil with 3 gallons, and used Penzeys natural vanilla extract (which the bottle claims is 40% stronger in flavor). I wonder how this is going to come out and if i should adjust the vanilla in the recipe.

I have it in the primary now with a blow-off tube rigged up. I figured with all of the "raging" fermentations i've read about it's a good idea. I used a 2L soda bottle with water in it for the other end of the blow-off tube. I figure that should suffice.

I tried it yesterday after i took the SG (1.056), but after straining the pelleted hops there was still too much hop material in the brew. It tasted like a sour ball with vanilla (only 1/4 cup so far!) and sweetness. Now, 19 hours later the soda bottle is bubbling about once/second and there's a thick layer of trub material. I love it that even if you didn't strain the hops, all that just falls right out of the beer.

Oh, and BTW i used Wheat DME instead of light wheat. That's all that AHB had in stock. I can't wait to try this with all of the comments on this thread.

Ok, I am trying not to say anything too blasphemous. Or be at risk of rioting crazed brewers at my doorm, for tampering with this reciple. With that said…I have a question…. I was hoping to brew a light wheat “ish” fruit-beer this summer (possibly blueberries). Now that I have read this thread I am hearing voices in my head saying “put the fruit in the Vanilla Caramel beer”. Are these voices that of the devil….or have I finally heard the fabled call of the beer angels?
