Ed's Apfelwein?
 
Has anyone ever infused fruit into their Apfelwein, maybe like strawberries? Iím trying some right now, in a 750 mason jar and 6 good sized strawberries.

It was fully fermented for 6 month, than put it into the jar with the strawberries.

I have 15 gallons of it cleared and ready to go. Most of it is over a year old, I was thinking of a similar study, dividing 5 gallons into one gallon bottles. Additions that came to mind are.

1. Blueberries
2. Oak chips
3. Ginger
4. Strawberries (thanks for the idea)
5. Apple pie spice
6. Pumpkin pie spice

Make sure to add potassium sorbate to prevent renewed fermentation.

Strawberries sounds great, let us know how it turns out! Did you slice them?

I put canned peaches into mine and it turned out great.

I have also thought about making an apple crisp cider. Mashing some rolled oats adding the running's to the apple juice and them adding apple pie spices to the secondary.
