I'm about to make my first Apfelwein. My homebrew store doesn't stock Montrachet yeast as used in EdWort's recipe. I know they have champagne yeast so would that be ok to use instead?

(I really need to get myself a credit card so I can start ordering things online)

yes... champagne yeast would work...I also used neutral ale yeast such as nottingham. You'll be ok...
Happy Brewing
