Default I gave in to Apfelwein.

When I first signed onto HBT, I never had any plans to make this. That was until I saw the massive amount of threads on the subject. It seems every brew signature has "EdWorts Apfelwein" in it somewhere. I had to know what all the fuss was about so i started a 2 gallon batch. They both have been bubbling away for 2 days now..



this was less than 24 hours later. The color changed completely..



I drink apple juice on a regular basis, so I'm sure I'll like this..

Oh, you will. Do a quick forum search for "I don't like Apfelwein," and count how many people said they brewed it, and didn't like it.

I'll say it... I HATE APFELWEIN! I hate it because it runs out too quick, it's inexpensive, it's potent, it's delicious, and it causes me to drink more of it than I'd care too!

Yeah the Apfelwein got me into brewing, it sounds so good and the recipe/technique is so simple, less intimidating than Beer. I just need mine to hurry up and get done, it has been 7 weeks, I bet it will be done soon, it is pretty clear.

Leave it for 4 months or more if you can wait that long. The apple flavors come back, and any sulfury notes will have disappeared.

The biggest thing here is it'll be tough to age 2 gallons long enough for it to actually get good. Young apfelwein is terrible, in my opinion.
