Does it make a difference with winemaking?

I prefer Captain Morgan. The darker color is easier to see from afar and the smell is awesome.

Default OK ill chime in

OK I made 2 - 6 gallon batches of applewein. Same amount of sugar.

The first one made a week before the second one.

The first one I added one cinnamon stick too. That one is taking longer to clear.
The one done a week later is clearing faster than the first.

Could the cinnamon really lag it that bad? Ive had the first one going for 6 weeks now.

Just an update for anyone who might care, its been a little over 12 hours and I'm getting a bubble every 2-3 seconds so it seems to be working. I also see a small layer of what I believe to be kreusen(sp?) forming.

You think you've got cloud. I used cinnamon powder. Great smell though and the top of the kruesen looks like apple crumb cake. I'm not concerned. I plan to cold condition in a keg for about 10 days after the 3-4 weeks. Hopefully, that will help settle out the "stuff". Either way, I think it is worth it to have that slight hint of cinnamon underneath the apple flavor.

I thought about this earlier too. Last fall I was thinking about using Penzey's mulling spices.
Cloves, cracked China and Korintje cassia cinnamon, allspice, cardamom and mace.
I make this at thanksgiving & X-mas with apple juice and cranberry and its awesome. (Non-Alcoholic)

I think it would be awesome start as hard spiced cider. (w/o the butter!!) In fact you can mull apfelwine you already made.

http://www.penzeys.com/cgi-bin/penze...ulledwine.html

If anyone is interested on the recipe you call pull it from this catalog. (page 21 in the pdf)

Be advised its 21megs.

Check out this incredible Kruesen.

This looks like some sort of early sci fi special effect landscape...or a slice of great apple crumb cake.

I modified the recipe to try for a lower ABV%...that's why you see a 1054 OG. Also added some chopped apples and skins along with cinnamon and dark brown sugar.

Man I can't wait...

Man, Kalvin, your pic is making me want some apple crumb cake right now

So if I want to carbonate about half of the bottles, I can just sprinkle corn sugar into the bottles I want to carbonate, yes? I think I heard something about 1/2 teaspoon per bottles, does that sound about right?

I used SafAle American Ale (DCL Yeast #US-56).

It happened to be lying around. I happened to be itching to "brew" something.

Avatar? - Thanks. Homemade. It's also the centerpiece on my American Red Pale Ale bottle.

I figured it was time to ante up for a membership. This forum has saved me a lot more than the nominal expense to belong. Plus I was tired of uploading pics to Google-Picasa everytime...
