I'd submit that apfelwein is a slight variation of apple wine that people have been making for hundreds of years.

You're right - apple wine/cider is pretty much what it is with a little of this or that added or taken away. I like mine sparkling with some acid blend to give it just a little tart kick. Others might like vanilla or spices but, at the end of the day, it's still wine or cider.

my next batch of apfelwein i'm going to add some blueberries and see how it comes out. i have made ed wort's apfelwein 2 times and it came out excellent both times. but i'm thinking i will use the 6 1/2 gal carboy instead of the 5 gal cause there may be more krausen

For my first brew I thought I'd be creative on the first try (learned my lesson). I wanted to make edwort's cider, but put in 5-6lbs of sugar. Now I'd say it's considered a wine. Next doing a mead then edwort's, and listening to instructions.
