Apfelwein is definitely cheap. I've made good stuff by pouring Walmart 100% juice onto my last Apfelweins yeast cake and adding a bunch of sugar. Went 4 generations on one pouch of yeast. Just kept dumping in the juice.
You would just pour more Juice into the same bottle? What exactly would you do?
Stuff went well. It cleared up pretty well. Definitely not that sweet, but still good and very drinkable. It has even kept well in the fridge for about 2 days.
Apflewein does dry out. add a splash of apple juice to it when drinking to sweeten it if you like. The champagne yeast might not cause as bad of a odor as montrachet during fermentation, not sure.
