Find out in a few weeks what it will be like.
I love it, great idea. Let us know how the apple juice tastes. My parents made wine by adding yeast to grapejuice. They put it in a big glass jar with a balloon on top so they could tell when it was done. Always wanted to try it but never have. I think you've inspired me to try it now.

God is great, beer is good and people are crazy....

Apfelwein. Its corn sugar, or dextrose. 2 lbs plus 5 gallons of apple juice with montrachet wine yeast for 6 weeks at room temp = delicious.

An alcohol boost to a regular brew.

Making wheaties into frosted flakes.

I wouldnt use it for starters as supposedly it gets the yeast used to simple sugars and does not give them the nutrition like a weak wort will for cell health.
