Yeah I don't want to drink to much of the stuff before the end of may so I might just let it chill in the carboy for one more week and then bottle.

I just bottled my delicious batch of Apfelwein-inspired dry-hopped Cyser and started a new batch of more traditional Apfelwein (no honey or brown sugar), but using the same ale-yeast blend I have been using for some time with great results. I also used BrewVint Alcohol Boost instead of corn sugar, just to play around with how different types of sugars affect the final product.

My Apfelwine is being stubborn to clear the first 1/4 of the carboy is crystal clear then it gets cloudy, you can see where it moves from cloudy to clear, a very defined point. Hopefully it is 1/2 way by tomorrow :P

I serve it ice cold and uncarbed. Sometimes I put a couple ice cubes in the glass to make it even colder.

Hi all a couple of questions here. I started a batch of Apfelwine on 2/08/09. Fermentation was visable 2 days later. My fermentation lock has been going ever since. Not real active but a bubble every 1/2 min or so. I followed the recipe exactly. My room temp was 64 to 66 for first month and a half. I know that this is low and the cause of slow fermentation. Gravities have been taken periodicaly and are as follows og 1.050, 3/7 1.012, and 4/7 1.002. Temp now reads 66 on carboy. My question is can I bottle at this gravity and add 3/4 cups of sugar to carb this in 12 oz. bottles or should I wait for gravity to drop to .999? It has changed color and cleared a little but has not gotten clear enough to read a newspaper through. Also do I have to worry about infections letting it go this long or will the amount of alcohol keep this from happening at this point? I have practiced good sanitation. Thanks for any sugestions.
