Apfelwein, first batch.
I had some spare time today so I swung by the homebrew store at lunch and Shoprite on the way home. My first 5 gallons of Apfenwein are in the carboy.

Did you add it to the count?


We're working toward ONE THOUSAND GALLONS...

First batch.
I did now.

Welcome to the club, the Apfelwein Club!

Bender 04-13-2007 09:25 PM

Thanks. I'm like a nervous father waiting for the first bubbles. I normally get the yeast going in a starter batch the night before. This was a whim so I just threw it together.

I just saw your Youtube Apfelwein on tap video. My mouth is watering.

Bubbling away.
Day two and it's bubbling away.

Where did you get the cool carboy jacket??

Bender 05-11-2007 11:14 PM

I got that years ago at a local home brew store that is long gone. You can find similar carboy jackets on the internet.

Looking good! Nice jacket too!

It's nice and clear now. I have to bottle this weekend. I sampled the stuff I made in 1 gal containers. Surprisingly dry considering the OG was 1.060 I wonder how it will age.
