Default Apfelwein in Mr. Beer

I just found the Apfelwein Recipe here and am wondering what I would cut in half in order to make it with my (now empty ) Mr Beer mini keg since it only holds about 2.5 gal

I have heard so many good things about the apfelwein I need to try it

You won't be dissapointed. If it's going to be 2.5 gallons just use 1lb of corn sugar. Make sure you leave a little space.

Cut the juice in half, and the dextrose and still use the same amount of yeast. You actually probably only want to fill the Mr. Beer to that line on the back which is about 8.5 quarts. Just cut back the dextrose a bit more.

A Mr. Beer only holds 2.5 gal if it is completely full.

Funny. I thought about the same thing yesterday. It's gathering dust in a closet. Why not use it as a mini fermenter to try things out in.

Great minds think alike I guess.
