I brewed this on 12/15. Though I bumped the molasses up to 3/4lb. I didn't have any Target on hand, so I substituted with Nugget. Also, double pitched S-04. I might prime with local honey rather than sugar?
This cost about $1.20 a bottle and I would put it against almost any sub 7 dollar Imperial at my local bottle shop.
Apfelwein is f'ing amazing!
I've since switched to all grain but would happily brew this extract recipe again. At almost a year in bottles its really taking on the deep rich chewy chocolate taste that I knew it would.
