I'm ready to do this tonight. I have a starter of Wyeast 3068 that I'm going to use. Won't be clean like the OP but I think it will be tasty. I'm going to go with 2oz of torrified and use Crystal 120L because that is what I have on hand. This is going to be sort of a Hefegraff. If this works out well I'd also like to try this with a Saison yeast.

that's because apfelwein uses the worst yeast possible (montrachet, even wine makers think it is subpar) and presents its self as an apple flavored drink when it really tastes like cheap white wine.

what are you boiling? this recipe doesn't call for any boiling. boiling juice, you will need some pectic enzyme otherwise that stuff will jelly up.

Yep, I'm pretty sure you're okay boiling the malt extract and hops. So far, MOST of my beers have used that technique and not had any issues...apple juice on the other hand!!!
