Gentlemen,

Rainy, cooler weather has awaken my instinct to make ale.
November first, I will start filling my three primarys and I was thinking...
{uh oh here he goes again}
Appfelwein, I want to make some Appfelwein but have never tasted any.
Is it available commercially at a good beer store?
I live in Dallas and just found out 'Two Rows' shut down.
{I got out one of their old empty half gallon jugs and looked up their URL.
I was going to ask them but...
'bye bye Two Rows.'


Really, I was going to keep three carbouys in Appfelwein production and give them, like, two or three months before bottling.
That would produce, in three primarys:
30 gallons if I make two batches and 45 if I make three.
Now, when I am desperate I will drink anything,
but I would like to know what I am doing
so I thought I would ask you guys.

Where can I get me some Appfelwein?


Thank you


J. Knife

hmmm... never seen it commercially available. the main draw of the stuff is that it's cheap and easy. I wouldn't say its a super fine drink in its own rite, at least the stuff I made.

If you have StrongBow offered around you, its similar to Afewiezen, not quite as good, but can do in a pinch.

What is apewiezen?

I'd suggest making a batch and trying it out. It takes, IMO, 6 months to fairly judge it. You could a simple 1G batch, but it's cheap enough to go ahead and make 5 IMO.

I don't touch mine before 7 months. It is nasty before that IMO.

I'll agree the longer the better. I drank the last bottle from my first batch after 1 year and had wished I'd kept the whole batch that long.
