Default edwort you have converted another one...

Well i got all the stuff to make my apfelwein today. 5 gallons of white house 100% apple juice, 2 lbs of brown sugar ( wanted it maybe a little bit sweeter but will experiment more later), Red Star champaigne (? spelling) yeast. Should have a nice stiff drink in about 4 weeks or so.

Austin

Don't be surprised if it's not as sweet as you anticipate, especially if you're using champagne yeast.

I used champagne yeast and mine was quite dry. Still very tasty, but not as sweet as one would think.

Mine's still in primary, I've used an ale yeast so it's most likely going to turn out like a hard cider.

As for spelling I recommend using Firefox as your internet browser, it has a spell checker for forum posting for the lazy buggers like me *^_^*

Default Sweetin' it up

To sweeten up wine, make sure its 100% fermented and then add sugar. Make sure there is no residual yeast left. I ussually sweeten apple wine with with apple juice concentrate.

I think i may have gotten some bad yeast, its been in there since 3:20 yesterday afternoon, its now 11:38 a.m. and all I have seen out of it is a few small bubbles in the airlock. Ive only seen the airlock move one time.

Do i need to get some more yeast and re pitch

Don't do anything yet. Sometimes it takes 24 hours or more for fermentation to start. What temp do you have it at?
