Too cold to crash it outside. (14F last night).

I filtered about 2/3 of a quart through a coffee filter and now it is in the refrigerator to crash there for a while.

It didn't smell like vinegar but it sure tasted like vinegar. Oh well.

It's a shame it tasted like crap after all that time. I suppose it's a lesson learned under the belt? At least it wasn't expensive to put together!

Have you dumped it yet? If not try mixing in dry milk powder. Let it settle back down and rack off. The applewine has oxidized for sure. The milk powder reduces the off flavors. I don't remember how much milk per galleon, maybe a Tab?
For vinigery taste but not flavor lots of backsweetening helps. Bump it up to 1.010. Use apple juice concentrate. Flavor bost it at the same time. Adding tannin smoth it out a little too.

mix it with equal parts ketchup and water, add some brown sugar and red pepper flakes and you got yourself an east Carolina BBQ sauce

very tasty on pulled pork
