Default Succumbed to the Apfelwein

So after listening to everyone say how great the Apfelwein is I decided to take EdWorts advice and make some. There is an orchard/cider house right down the road from me. I got it fresh out of the press and made it today. I just wish I did it sooner so it would be ready for my friends New Years party.

what is the final ABV% of this stuff? Im looking forward to it. Maybe I will give it to the SWMBO when I want her to do something



Also, can this ferment at lager temps? Its in the basement at 58* right now.

Is that because apple has so much fusils in it, or because the abv is high?

It's because it is 8.5% ABV and if you drink it like beer, you will get hammered and dehydrated.

The water is for the dehydration and the aspirin is for the headache you're gonna have in the morning.

Be Prepared!

4 weeks until new years, so it should be ready just in time for your party (just drink this batch straight and carb your next batch that you'll start in 2 weeks).
