When I did my batch of Crapfelwein yesterday, I'd pour just enough juice out of each bottle to put the cap back on and shake the hell out of it. Looked like a little dextrose fell out of solution this morning from the looks of the bottom of the carboy. I gave that a little shake too. Last time I looked, my yeast army was making the airlock bubble at an acceptable rate.

I just bottled half of my cranapfelwein batch. I made it with half apple juice, half cranberry apple cocktail, 1.5 table sugar, and 4 cans of GV frozen apple juice concentrate onto Montrachet lees from my first batch.
OG:1.070
FG:1.008
It came out much sweeter this time, and I'm not sure if that's the concentrate or cranberry juice, which I have heard is a little sweeter finishing.

Is it still pretty dry?

Wife is not a huge fan of super dry finishes - looking to find something that she'll like more than the original recipe.

I must admit, I've stopped making apfelwein. I've switch over to Preiselbeerwein (Cranberry). Same recipe, swap in cranberry juice instead of apple.

Don't know why you couldn't. The fermentation vessel is going to be a closed system anyway. You'd have to come up with an airlock that would vent gas but not liquid, some sort of permeable layer. The yeast might have a hell of a time with flocculation.

Place the liquid into a cylinder spinning about its axis, the liquid will spin and stay on the walls, and a tube could evacuate the empty area in the middle. Run the tube out to where an airlock would feel the centrigugal force, and you're in business. Motorize it and you're home free. Might have to filter it though.
