Patience Grasshopper. Now is the time to start another batch.

That would require another fermentation vessel. And another carboy. And a propane burner to cook the wort. Too many unjustifiable acquisitions before Xmas. Sadly, I think I've done all I can until this lousy Xmas season is over.

Of course, making matters even worse, is the seven birthdays that may family has between the 10th and 27th of December. My dad, mom, a cousin, 2 uncles, and an aunt. This makes it a very difficult time for me to start brewing.

If you do it my way, all you need is another carboy. That's it. Nothing to cook. Just sanitize the carboy, add the juice, dextrose & yeast. Total process is less than 30 minutes including sanitizing stuff.

But I already have 5 gallons of your apfelwein in process!!! I need to know how long that's gonna last me. And besides, I'll undoubtedly adjust the recipe to my own taste after sampling it.

Ok, mine is still cloudy (looks like septic cerebrospinal fluid), and is bubbling once every 5 seconds.

THIS STUFF IS GOING TO GET ME AND SWMBO DRUNK!!!!!

I sampled my apfelwein tonight. Its still bubbling a bit, but fairly slow. I added bentonite to it to it. I'll rack it before I bottle it.

Man it tasted good. A bit young. Its very smooth. No fore or after tastes at all. It needs a bit of sweetening. One could really get hammered on that stuff.

I followed your recipe to the letter. That's some potent stuff! The crazy thing is, it just keeps going down easier with each glass. A guy could get really messed up with this stuff.

Hows the hangover with this stuff? I had one last night that was really, really good. I could easily see myself easily putting a couple away at one sitting.

It wasn't too bad. I had four glasses, plus a glass of espresso stout and some scotch, so I'm not sure what caused what
