Kanadier Apfelwein thread!
I just started a very small batch of Apfelwein this evening, about 1100mL
I bought a 1.36L jug of Graves Apple Juice, poured a bit off the top, added two ounces of dextrose (OG 1.060), aerated, pitched a packet of Lalvin EC-1118 and air locked it. I'm only making enough to fill a wine bottle. Why so little you might ask? It's what I had left over from the batch I started 3 weeks ago and I thought it would make a nice Christmas present for my uncle.
Despite not using the tinfoil method for this batch I did use it for my 19L batch of hard cider and I believe it's a good idea. I figured I'd just leave this little project at my mother's house and I can't really trust her to switch the tinfoil for an airlock in a couple days time without risking infection. I definitely over-pitched anyways ha ha. Pics later.
