Honestly I'm really hopin this is some awesome stuff, my buddy is really into German culture and speaks fluent german..so wanting to appease his love of the german culture i wanted to suprise him with some bottles of Apfelwein for his birthday... and my question now is.. what should I do to bottle this Apfelwein!... Wine bottles? Beer bottles? I'm sorry im seriously new at this apfelwein game.

Go get some Tecate or Carte Blanca in 32 oz bottles and soak the labels off after you drink the beer. They will make great gift bottles. 1 bottle, 1 great buzzz.

When I make apfelwein regardless of what type of yeast is used, it smells like buffalo farts for the first 3 - 4 days of fermentation, especially so with Montrachet yeast.
I think I have made 4-5 batches and I never have any smell either. Always the original recipe with fresh pressed no additive juice from Costco.

I do love me some all grain apfelwein though!
