Malic acid is what make tart apples tart, nothing to worry about.

Another question about priming...how much juice would be required to prime when bottling?

"Brewed" ours on Sunday, after we bottled our Bock, and today the airlock is busy.

Roughly 1 bubble per second, or second and a half and a steady stream of little bitty bubbles running up the sides of the carboy.

And it's already smelling like alcohol, ever so slightly. No sulphur smell yet. Cripes I can't wait to drink this stuff!

I love yeast and sugar!

What is the purpose of priming with DME? Seems to me that molasses, honey, table sugar, etc would all give you a more suitable flavor profile for an apfelwein... not that I've reached that stage yet...

Well, I just stuck my keg of Apfelwein in the kegerator last night. Today it's not quite cold, and only half carbonated, but damn it tastes good. I'm on my third glass as I type this, and I'm getting a little tipsy.

'cause that's what I stock in my brew cupboard for priming ale. DME is less fermentable than sugar so it'll add some sweetness to the cider, sugar will ferment out and add no sweetness.

Congrats! Did you use my recipe or did you modify it? If so, how?

Enjoy!

Well, it's now been a FULL two weeks for my apfelwein. I'm still getting one bubble every ten seconds. Still cloudy.

I yelled at it to hurry its ass up. I don't think it did any good.
