Well Mine has been conditioning for about a week. I will try one this weekend as well as with a PIC on it's progress

I used 1 1/3 cup of Dextrose with my 23 liter batch.

So, others have reported using 2/3 c. for 5 gallons. If I did the math in my head right, you used quite a bit more than that.

Anyone want to comment how much they have used?

The general rule of thumb I like to use, is 1 ounce (by weight) for each gallon. The "One Shot" 3/4 cup packages we sell, are weighed out at 5 ounces, instead of measuring 3/4 cup.

I think I'll be added to the list of folks that have made this recipe. I'm going to gather up the ingredients this week and get it fermenting hopefully next weekend. Camping trip to Maine coming up in August, any chance I can take some carbed Apfelwein for that trip, if not, I guess I could take it still.

Either way, it will be a tasty treat up in Maine. Have fun and enjoy!

Sounds familar!!! My wife would have said the same thing. Its funny how alcohol effects you when it hits you at warp speed!!

My first experiment with Apfelwein was when my wife out of the house for the evening. I could bask in my a-holeness!!!

I moreless planned it to happen that way.

In this situation I like to call it, "Product Performance Testing!". Verification of the 3 glass rule.
