As most have also noticed, Apfelwein tastes better after a good aging period. Does anyone know the chemistry/process that facilitates this?

I'm not sure that's actually a word.

It is now. I just made it. Actually I Google it and there wasn't any actual proof that the word exists.

There is tons of stuff on Google about general science of wine aging but I've searched a lot and can't find anything specific to apple wine/cider. With regular wine there are lots of processes at play but apple wine just doesn't seem as complex as grape wine. *shrugs

Yeah, I was seeing the same thing. The only thing that sounds fitting is a maybe a malolactic component...reducing the really potent malic acid to a "softer" lactic acid. If indeed that's the case, maybe we should be selecting a fermentation profile (and yeast) that facilitates that process.
