Saturday I was out in the yard working all day on the hop garden and a few other things. I got back in and I was tired but the wife wanted to goto Sams Club and pick up a few things. I thought this would be a good time to get some Apple Juice for Apfelwine. From what I read I did myself a favor and planned for a 10 gal batch. They dont sell apple juice around here by the gallon, usually 3 Qt Bottles. So I figured for 40 Qts I needed 14 bottles.
I get to the store and for some stupid reason I thought 'okay I need to double my regular batch size' and bought 80 Qts!
I didnt realize my mistake till after I poured the 5th bottle of apple juice and had a nearly full bucket.
So anyways, I got 20 gallons of apfelwine bubbling away in the ferementers.
