This will be my first time ever brewing anything, just got my kit I ordered off eBay. I was thinking about making EdWort's Apfelwein because it seems so simple. All the research I have been doing online, all recipes seem to use chemicals besides yeast and sugar, so is that really all you need for making this? Also recipe says it has to sit for at least 4 weeks before bottling, is longer better? Or should I bottle it at 4 weeks? Recipe says it is a dry wine, how dry is it? Is it sweet at all? My wife and I like our wine a little sweet.
