UPS dropped off the yeast and other items at 5. Just put 5 gallons in the closet about 20minutes ago. Now the wait.

I've never tired "Apfelwein" but I am used to Irish/English hard cider so I don't know what the difference is in the taste and I assume it doesn't taste like wine. What is the taste difference? I also want to try your recipe ASAP. Is the difference the yeast used? In other words would the Wyeast or WL yeast make it taste more like a Irish/UK cider. Thanx for your time. Peter.

I haven't made any apfelwein in a couple years. I've been reading through the thread looking for some juice variations. Cranberry? Rasberry? Grape? The original is great but I'd like to mix it up for the wife... Also, I've read about some alternative yeast strains; is there a consensus on something other than Montrachet that doesn't comprimise the recipe? Those rhino farts are not the wife's favorite...

Mine is bubbling away like crazy. No sulphur smell, just a really nice smelling closet :-)
