I've got some on tap if you ever get the urge to try some sooner than yours' will be done. Although that recent "questionable" post makes me reconsider letting you know where I live.

I think I may need some after this weekend. I won't have a working fridge until probably Sunday night at the earliest so I'll only have a cooler of beer on hand.

What questionable post are you speaking of? What's the first rule about Fight Club?

That's the one. I'm actually on my second glass of Apfelwien right now, so I'm a little on the giddy side.

Good to see some folks having success and liking it. It does take a glass or two to acquire a taste for it. And if you are drinking pint glasses, it will sneak up pretty quick. If you get hammered, remember to drink a liter of water and take three aspirin before you go to bed and you'll feel much better than if you just went to bed.

Were I to prime rather than force carbonate, I would use corn sugar.

Well i made mine last night. I forgot how expensive apple juice is. I felt liek I was doing a extract batch again when I paid for it all. I htink it took a whopping 15 minutes since I had a clean and sanitized carboy ready to go.

Sitting at a cool 66 degrees this morning, and I made sure SWMBO knows the sulphur smell isnt going to be coming from me.

Now the fun part.
*sits and waits for a month*

Thanks - I do not have the kegging equipment and have never seen it done.
