Has anyone had an infected batch of apfelwein? My twin brother just made his first batch yesterday and today he says he has 'cottony' gunk floating on top of the apfelwein. Sounded to me like it was infected, but I wanted everyone's input. Dump it or let it ride?

What recipe did he follow? If he did it according to my instructions, the gunk is not normal. It's probably a sanitation issue. What did he fill his airlock with?

As far as I know, he followed your recipe. He used two capfuls of Iodophor to sanitize and put water in the airlock, I think. Think that was the problem?

Is this supposed to look like lemonade when it is done? I was expecting more of an apple juice color....

Anyway, mine is kegged and will be ready for SWMBO when she gets home Friday!

WOW is this stuff dry...WOOO!!!!!!

The "cottony" gunk could be small air bubbles clumped together. I had a similar looking thing and it went away after a few days. Tastes great and is bottled now....

just a thought..
