Home Depot carries Culligan water bottles that are #1. They are only $6 too, nice price.

You gotta watch the cullingan bottles, some are #1 and some are #7. I don't know if they are in the process of a changeover, or if they just have mixed inventory. I have noted that their "purified" water always seems to be in #1 bottles and their Spring water is most often #7 with the occaisional #1 mixed in. HD sells the Spring water, but there is a Culligan warehouse just down the road from me that sells several water types (distilled, spring purified and RO) in 3 gallon and 5 gallon.

Because it comes the closest to the Apfelwein he had in Frankfurt.

Every bottle at my home depot was a #7, otherwise I would've picked them up. I imagine that everyone's shifting towards #1's, but it happens faster in some places than others.

#7 water bottles are polycarbonate and can be used. I used them for many many many many (shall I go on) years. There's just as much Biph-a in a can of coke, if that's your worry.

Get a used water bottle, the Biph-a should have leached out of those used ones a long time ago.

I just want to pick one of the cheaper water bottles so I can use my 2 BB as my secondary for beer and the cheap one for my ciders and apfelwein's

Back to the Apfelwine at hand.....I wasn't really looking to carbonate it. I'm already having enough problems finding bottles for my beer at this point (and I really don't feel like bottling three 5 gallon batches the same day).

But I would like a little, uh, effervescence. Ed mentioned splashing it with 7up or something like that when you serve it. What do you guys think about me just racking into some growlers (cracking the seal every week to let off whatever pressure might build up), and then when serving it up just have some 7up they can splash it with, or mix it up and put it in a container with a spout at a party?

I haven't really seen anyone talk about how it is combined with 7up, or something else and was curious as to how it compares.

I am ready to make some of this tonight. I had an order for my starter kit and it came in today. I thought I had ordered 2 pounds of corn sugar but guess I didn't. I know I can use brown sugar instead but can you buy corn sugar at the grocery store? Is it called something else at the store?

If I use brown sugar, should I still use 2 pounds? I plan to use light brown sugar. Also, do I mix the brown sugar the same way as the corn sugar or do I have to boil the brown sugar in juice first?

Yep, you use it the same way.

If you have a health food store near by you might find corn sugar there.

I did batches with both and i can't tell the difference.
