    Wow - I'm going to try the vanilla extract too, Thanks! My uncle and I take turns buying &
    sharing beans from for a kahula recipe we enjoy. Their prices have been right for us.

    Excellent tip on Office Max - I never thought of that. Gimp Rocks too - but as noted there is a
    steep learning curve.I also tend to use Publisher for labels (when giving gifts). I create my
    labels 4 p...

    Jan - you've got me wondering why I did this to begin with... now that you mention it I'm
    trying to recall when, if ever, I've actually seen wax on corks other than my own. What does

    I've bottled a wine that I intend to save for at least another year and anticipate keeping a

    Good for you! That beats dumpster diving at the recycling center (as I do). Sounds like he
    deserves a bottle of your next batch.:mug:

    No - I certainly can't see any bubbles. It does have a flavor that I can't name, I want to say
    either 'green' or possibly 'champagne', which does make me wonder if your yeast theory could be
    it. If it...

    Thanks Leadgolem - I bet you're right on the apple particles / possible yeast. You're
    definitely right on the 'Yummy', I popped a cork and it was delicious! I think the glass
    emphasized the sediment b...

    I made my first batch of Apfelwein and buried it in our pantry to age for holiday sharing. I
