    You did not mention the yeast, but I had a bad experience with WLP-029. Very cidery,
    chardonnay, and it took six months in bottle to be drinkable. (I attribute some of this to too

    Nothing wrong with that recipe. If you want to read about just Alt, I can highly recommend

    most German...
