Went with Kroger brand apple juice this time. Hope it turns out as good as the rest. After this batch I'm going to go for something different (brown sugar or something along those lines).

Apfelwein keeps getting stuck

I've done 2 batches of Apfelwein and they both got stuck at 1.009. I've heard they are supposed to get below 1. I've tried shaking it up and warming it up to about 69 for 8 weeks.

Well you don't really want to get rid of the yeast because they need to carbonate your beers in the bottle. This is, unless you are kegging. I think most people on here will tell you that trying to...

Possbile Bottle Bombs!!!

So I apparently just had a brain fart and put 3/4 cup of corn sugar in a 3 gal batch. Am I going to have bottle bombs? These are in Grolsch swingtop bottles if that changes anything.
