I've made around 30 gallons of this stuff now. I've added more sugar to bring up the ABV, and I've made to spec of Ed's original recipe.

I've had lots of people taste it and call it hooch, and say "its awful how can you drink it?" But those who like it, LOVE IT!

My favorite way to make it so far has been original recipe with 2kg of corn sugar and put it on tap. 3 tall glasses, and you might be waking up on your best friends Mom's couch!

Also, I've read about some alternative yeast strains; is there a consensus on something other than Montrachet that doesn't comprimise the recipe? Those rhino farts are not the wife's favorite...
anyone?

Depends how hot she is. If hot, give her the appley rocket fuel. If not, you may need it to not remember.

Aw, come on. There's a NSFW section for this kind of stuff.

I split a batch up and did 1gal each of cranberry and apple at 25/75, 50/50, and 75/25%. Consensus was that the 50/50 was the best. The cranberry tannins definitely add to a fuller flavor than the 100% apple.

Quick question: my wine is done and it was clear. The last bottle however looks really cloudy. I used Simply Apple and it is made out of pure pressed apples and I think it all sank to the bottom. If this is true, is this bottle safe to drink? If not, what can I do with it?

Absolutely! The stuff I always got in Germany had sediment in the bottom. I was half tempted to add some applesauce for extra sediment and try to keep it the way I always remembered the stuff. I would imagine you will not get a lot of sediment out of it when you siphon it out to a bottling container or keg though.
