    Only a sick person could come up with this idea - how stoned would you have to be to say,
    "Duuuude, we could make a KILLING by selling beer wrapped in animal carcass!"Very interesting,
    but there is no...

  • Posted in thread: How to clear cloudy apfelwein? on 05-16-2010 at 03:23 PM
    Just my two cents...I used unfiltered the FIRST go round - it dropped clear in thirty days -

    Hey all, apfelwein is my first wine to be ready to bottle. I followed the directions almost
    exactly except I used 1 lb brown sugar and 1 lb white sugar instead of the dextrose. I used
    unfiltered juice...
