I would think so, that's why the recipe calls for bringing only 1 cup to a boil, so you can disolve the sugar and allow the spices to steep in it for 30 minutes before adding it to a quart of Apfelwein that you gently heat to serving temp.

I see!

Let me ask you another question, since I have to transfer it over to the glass carboy at some point, should I allow more time than the 4 weeks for it to settle out again?

It's up to you. You can leave it there to age if you wish. I just kegged a batch that was in carboy over two months. You should be able to go up to 6 months without issue.

Ok, I'm going to bottle today. Questions is, does it matter if I keep the bottled wine in the frig or at room temp?

If you want to drink it, keep it in the fridge. Storing it at room temp should be fine.

I decided to join the bandwagon and give your recipe a go. It seemed almost too easy to make.

Thanks Ed!

Finally made it to Sam's Club for enough apple juice to start my own batch. My buckets and Better Bottle have been dormant since upgrading to a conical. I can't wait to put this recipe together tomorrow. Thanks, Ed, for the simplistic means of making a what oughta be a hell of a cider!

My wife loves hard cider, and she caught wind of this thread, and now I think I have no choice but to jump on board as well and make at least one batch of this. . .

Now, I'm planning on putting this on tap when it's done--and I like a little bubbly in it, so I was thinking of doing a small amount of force carbonation--question is, how many PSI?? I was thinking of holding it at 10 or 12 for a week or so.

I carb mine between 10 & 12 PSI as that is my dispensing pressure. It works great for me. It will be ready after a week.

I just kegged another batch today and brought a new keg online. SWMBO gives her approval. She's loving it on tap.

The Montrachet yeast by the way packs down nice and tight after 4 weeks. I can move the Better bottle to siphoning height without any disturbance of the yeast.

I'm on week three and I pulled off a sample. Getting a little sour apple flavor. Will this mellow out or is that how it's supposed to be?
