Personally, I don't like the apfelwein talked about on these forums unless it's aged for 6+ months. I've only made one batch of it and that was over a year ago. I still have bottles laying around because they don't get drank. I'm a beer guy. I let mine sit in primary for 8 weeks then bottled it.

It really benefits from longer aging. I've just tapped my batch from Oct 09.
