I made a batch of Apfelwein and Panty Dropper today... Once they're done I'll distribute the nectar and see which one is the best.
Now before either of the recipes authors gets their panties in a bunch, here are the modifications I made to each recipe.
Modfied Apfelwein: OG 1.065
5 Gallons 100% Tree Top Apple Juice
2 pounds of bakers sugar (Ultrafine Pure Cane Sugar)
1 five gram packet of Montrachet Wine Yeast
Modified Panty Dropper: OG 1.080
8 cans of Roundy's (not Wal-Mart) Apple Juice Concentrate
2 Gallons Tree Top Apple Juice
2 lbs Regular White Table Sugar
Sweet Mead Yeast – WLP720
Topped up to 5.5 gallons with Britta Tap Water
1-1/4 Cup Dark Brown Cane Sugar
1 Cup Pure Honey
1 Cinnamon Stick
May they both win!!!
