wow I cant believe I haven't read this yet. Definitely going to make this so I have some for Christmas.

Is there any need to age once its kegged and carbonated? Or just chill, carb and serve?

Get some air moving. I goes away after a day or two.

She'll love you after 7 weeks when you keg it and she now claims a faucet as "Her Faucet" Finger Weg!

Then again its a good thing when she claims your faucet!

Well, the dogs came to my rescue as far as the smell goes. . . I came home today, and they had $#it and urinated all over the floor, drowning out the sulfur smell, so my wife didn't gripe. . .of course, I had to clean all the crap up, and ended up vomiting on the floor because of the smell. . . .

Yep. I'm in Munich. Did my work in Augsburg today, now working enjoying the weekend. It's almost time for dinner & Weissbier.

I had my first taste of Apfelwein today as I kegged it. It was flat and warm, but MAN, did it taste GOOD! I used Ed's exact recipe and I can't wait until it carbs. I may even have to buy a new carboy so I can have this stuff around all the time because I KNOW SWMBO is gonna be a fan too.

I was thinking a ported 5 or 6 gal better bottle would be pretty nice for this stuff, any reason why I shouldn't use a port?
