So I plan on dong a 7 and half gallon batch of apfelwein today. Do you think I need to get two packages of yeast? I am going to stick with Edworts original recipe. with 3 lbs sugar instead of 2. Would it hurt anything to use two packages of yeast?

Finally made it to Costco today but couldn't find Tree Top. So I picked up some Kirkland(Costco's store brand). It doesn't say no preservatives but does say 100% juice and only lists apple juice as the only ingredient so I'm guessing it's o.k. Anyone else try using it?

Has anyone else gotten in the habit of looking at the ingredient lists of every type of apple juice in whatever store you're in? Is that weird?

Actually I think I found a quick and dirty solution - I put a small plate of baking soda on top of the fermenter and cover the whole thing loosely with a trash bag. Seems to be absorbing the smell quite well

My apologizes if this question has been asked before.

I'm ready to rack off my finished Apfelwein from a 6.5 glass carboy to a corney keg.

Can I just add more apple juice and sugar back to the 6.5 carboy on top of the leas and let the fermemtation begin again for a second batch?

Would the leas left in the carboy give the secound batch any off taste?

Or would it be better just to clean up and start over with fresh yeast?

Just finished reading every post on this thread.....ow.
Apfelwein to go into a new Betterbottle tonight or tomorrow. True to Edwoprt's original recipe. I'm thinking this batch may go right into champagne bottles to age for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I'll get another batch going for drinking this summer. Hopefully will be getting some Possman's from a local store to taste since this "brew" takes some time.
Thanks Ed!
