Thanks. When I first brought this recipe and techniques to the board, everyone thought I was just a drunk rambler and put it down much like they did earlier in this thread. It was everything I could do to prove that it can be done even though I was making it for almost a year before I went public with it. I would hate to see the the guy to who developed the ApfelWine get caught up in all of it.

I have never used a filter, but thought about it.

When it gets way up there in the 18% range, it rolls over slowly the last couple of %. It can take me another day to go from 5% to 4% abv, what ever that calculates out to but with the cooler temps, it may take you several days. I think you are pretty close to what the original juice was???

I use a 'Brew Belt' and the internal temp of the fermenter is 80F to 85F and in the summer it can creep up close to 90F If I am not careful. I try to keep it cooler then the 90F though.

I am sure it's fine and just a little slower because of the lower temp. If you like making it, you may want to invest in one of these for $17.95. For this recipe and yeast, their worth every penny, err dollar..

You can get them about anywhere. I just borrowed their website for illustration.

Yeah, the carbon filter was recommended on the yeast package. I have no idea what the difference is between apple juice and sugar and just using sugar, but figured it might help. The first time I tasted it, I could not finish the sample (very unusual for me...), so I'm hoping the clearing and filtering will alleviate any off tastes.
