Congrats EdWort for all the hard work and time put into this thread... I'd say there are other homebrew forums out there who wish they had this pmany posts total!
Thanks! It's hard to believe there are 1,000 posts on this thread. Is this a record for HBT?

We had about 1,400 in the fantasy football thread, but this thread has twice the views.

Thanks guys. Over 36,500 views. Did we hit 500 gallons yet?

SWMBO just phoned me to tell me she floated the Apfelwein keg. I guess I'll be bringing a keg in from the garage cooler when I get back in town and starting a new batch. That one only lasted 3 weeks.

Default How Much to Date

If you just made some, rachet up the total gallons.

Well, I tried to start my first batch today and got so darn excited I screwed the thing up... used nearly 5lbs of dextrose instead of 2... I guess if I start working on that airplane I've always wanted maybe I can use this for fuel?

Damn i'm an idiot. any ideas on how to salvage it?

I guess, I could try siphoning half of it into another carboy and adding 2 gallons to each carboy?

Of course then i've got 10 gallons of apfelwein that I don't even know if I'm going to like (although you all keep telling me that I will, so hopefully that's the case! lol)

le sigh.

Get it to a gravity reading you want and kill the yeast.

You'll have to settle for the non-carb'd version and it will likely be sweeter than dry but that may be okay.

What do I need to do to kill off the yeast? Is there an appropriate FG that I should be aiming for?

Campden and wine stabilizer tablets will do a fine job of killing the yeasties.

Without knowing your starting gravity, it's hard to say.

It's up to you to decide. Calculate your alcohol percentage ((Starting Gravity - Current Gravity) x 131)). If the alcohol is where you want it, take a taste. If that's fine...hasta la vista my yeastie friends.
