    Hansonian, keep us updated if you were able to salvage this batch. Don't give up, this is a
    learning process. I learn something new with each batch!

    Using a 1 gallon of wine after 3 days is fine. I've done it before. Its just like making a
    starter, but with flavor. You didn't mention if you backsweetened before bottling or not. If
    you did, how muc...

    I taste at racking and bottling! I try it as soon as I want to. That having been said, the best

    Just opened a bottle I made thats 11 months old. I love this stuff after 6 months but this

    wife to stop ...

    Yooper, I have made several gallons of this and it works out great as a Sangria base! Need to
    start a 5 gallon batch now.

    I don't think anyone has answered this yet.... Does Apfelwein need to be stabilized like with
    wine kits?I do not stabilize mine. I end up carbonating half of the batch and bottle some
    still. I have at...

    This was my first brew too! Congratulations you made beer. Might not be your best, might not be
    your worst, but you made it. I usually give my beer 3 to 4 weeks before bottling. No need to
    rush it.
