Thanks for the advice guys! I will go ahead and leave it in primary for 3 months and plan to enjoy it by November/December.

Just don't let it go too long too frequently. Usually you'd be ok but my last batch autolyzed really bad (albeit was left in for about 4-5mos). At the same time I've left several down for almost 6 that came out great.

I have a problem. My fermentation chamber is also my kezer for the time being, house is usually in the mid-high 80's over the summer. I'm not sure what to do with the apfelwein once my beer has finished fermenting.

Well, my apfelwein made some rhino farts. I think I'll be putting it into a swamp cooler this evening.. it has been fermenting around 72.

I hate to be the bad guy in this thread. I have been fermenting my apfewein for more than 3 months and i tasted tonight. And I don't like it

I'm not saying it is bad, just that I don't like it. I will bottle it anyway for the people that come to my place and don't like beer.

I don''t think I willl make it again. It is not just to my liking and I will stick to beer in the future.

I keep my full judgment unltil I taste it fullly carbonnated.

I don't think this stuff is very good for the first 6-8 months... don't understand why everyone tries to rush this stuff.

I found around the 5 month mark (including aging in a keg) is pretty good for me. I've made around 30 gallons of this over the last few years.
I let it sit in primary for 2-3 months usually.

I love this stuff, and I always keep a batch in rotation. I always primary it for a couple months, then secondary for at least six-8 more months.
