Hey guys .... Im trying this tonight, Ive never brewed anything before in my life.

Got a 5 gallon carboy and airlock.

Getting ready to run to the brew shop for dextrose and mantrochet then the grocery store to grab some AJ.

One thing I didnt even think about till now ... and its a ridiculously stupid question ... lol

...... what the hell do I do with it once its done? lol ...

Ill be mixing it up tonight and it will set until March 20th.

Ild rather not bottle, is there some kind easier storage solution (maybe 1 gallon jugs or something?).

Can I simply syphon it out of the 5 gallon carboy and into 1 gallon jugs, cap and store or will that ruin it in a few days?? I mean .. I certainly cant just drink it out of the carboy lol .... I wouldnt think.



Appreciate any suggestions!

Racking it into the jugs would be fine, but keep in mind this is essentially wine. If you had a 1 gallon jug of wine, once you opened it you would need to drink it all quite quickly. If you didn't you would end up with oxidized apfelwein and that will taste like cardboard. It is best to bottle it in smaller containers, more suitable for one sitting's worth of drinking.

You should try and bottle in less then 1 liter bottles because that would be much better... basically drinking more then 1 liter all by youself... that would make you pretty drunk... two would blast you off... so i would sugest 22oz bottles... two cases would be enough and you would be able to drink it while you ferment and age you next batch

@Tusch,

Thanks for that. It may seem very common sense to folks that have been at it for a while, but some of the newer folks wouldn't have gotten that, and probably been put off by getting "iffy" cider.
