I can not wait to try the aged version , but looks like i need to wait a while until my next batch is done. I hope the 45 pints i bottled (with crown caps) will last me 6-8 months. If not, I will have some skeeter pee to sip until they are ready.
If your quickly going through your stash this early in the game, go ahead and buy some more buckets and ingredients. Stagger a few batches so you always have something to drink.

If you are "slamming them" even remotely think that 45 pints might last you 6-8 months, you may want to re-assess your assertation that you are "no homo"

Go ahead and start 3 more batches of apfelwein drinking 4 a night will only give you 11 nights enjoyment. You can drink one young like you are now and the other 2 will get a little age on them. Then start skeeter pee on those 3 yeast cakes, and it will give you more to drink while you let the apfelwein time to age.

I bottled my apple wein from a bottle bucket right from it's primary carboy... Is this wrong? If I was to rack and let sit would that do away with the white sediment I have in my bottles?
