two separate batches two days later after adding another gallon of apple juice to each. So total 4 gallons of apple juice and 1 gallon of apple cider in each, plus 2+ pounds of corn sugar and a pound or two of fruit in each(plus a packet of montrachet each). Both bubbling away nicely creating crazy fermenting cider/fruit smell in the back half of the house. And a definite color difference between the cherries from bright red to sucked half dry in just two days. And between the two ciders, the one with the red fruits is super red by comparison.

It really does take no time at all to make EdWorts' original recipe (if you don't count the several hours of cursing and searching for the StarSan that your family hid on you!)

Three quart "from concentrate" juice jugs (with Vitamin C added) $2.49 at the Walmart mega-center. Seven made for 5 & 1/4 gallons, I used it all having read how little krausen is expected with Montrachet .
21 quarts, 2lbs of corn sugar, one pack of Montrachet added exactly as proscribed; 1.060 OG, should be good for 8.5ish% if http://www.brewersfriend.com/abv-calculator/ is to be believed.

Happy yeast burbling away in the airlock. Just a little more than one burp per second after 18 hours at 74 Fahrenheit

Just tasted my first batch of apfelwein after 3-4 weeks in the fermenter. I followed the original instructions but instead of 2 whole cups of corn sugar I did 1.5C corn sugar 0.5c light brown sugar just due to not having enough corn sugar. It has been cloudy for a while but really started clearing up over the last 5 days.

I tasted a sample two nights ago and holy crap I can already tell this will be dangerous once it's got another couple of months to age and is chilled and carbed in a keg. Wife enjoyed the sample as well. It had a strong sauvignon blanc wine smell with, obviously, a much stronger green apple scent. Flavor was very thin, slightly apply, and even though it's only 3-4 weeks old the alcohol was barely present. Amazing how good this tastes for being so simple.
