Damn you all, making it sound so good. This will be one of my next couple of brews.

rdwj, you'll have to bring some to our get-together.

I'd have to bring the whole keg - no bottles - lol!

I hope I like it because it couldn't be easier to make.

Absolutely. Took longer to sanitize the gear than it did to "brew." The bottling turned into a PITA for me today, but that's not an issue for you guys.

Plus, it cost me like ten bucks, total, for 2.5 gallons. 5 x $1.39 for the juice, plus a buck for yeast, and maybe a buck for a pound of brown sugar.

Next up for the small carboys is a mead of some kind, but I imagine the other will have some apfelwein aging more often than not. See what you started, Ed!

I "assembled" mine on Oct 21 so I'm going to wait another week or two. My Fermentation temp. dropped to about 66* for a couple days, so I hope that didn't slow it down too much.

Planning on bottling mine, now it's just a debate whether or not to prime.

Your tone implies that it might be a problem. Don't worry, we won't send you home with a heavy keg.

I've assembled all of the ingedients and I'm going to do Ed's original recipe tonite.

No, not at all! I don't mind bringing it. I'm not sure if any establishment we visit would look too kindly on me dragging in a keg and a bottle of C02 - lol.

Perhaps I'll invest in a growler or something like that. I've been meaning to get a beer gun, but SWMBO has me on a short leash recently. Just sunk a bunch of cash into my basement bathroom.

Instead of adding sugar, why not add more concentrate? Then it would have a higher ABV and still taste like apples. I started four liters yesterday with six liters worth of tree top, and a cup and a quarter brown sugar. That stuff's gonna be awesome!

This looks very tasty. Id very much like to try it for my next batch. What PSI are you serving it at?
