If you are in Canada. I found the BEST apple juice that is widely available fog cider or Apfelwein.

It's from The great Canadian Superstore (or extra foods, which they own).

"Presidents Choice Natural Apple Juice. Unfiltered Not from Concentrate."

I don't know what blend of apples they use but it is just about perfect. I think it was $2.69 for 1.89L at Superstore and $3.39 at Extra foods.

Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) is just fine. It will just help the yeast and make the Apfelwein better for you.

I'll look for that the next time i'm in there, but i'm usually cheap.....so i usually end up buying juice when it goes on sale at $.95 for the 1.2L cans..... But might do up a 3gallon batch to see any difference.

You can also find it in the states at any store owned by supervalue.

So my first batch got bottled tonight everything went smooth and it tasted pretty darn good already.. Only problem is that i forgot to take an OG reading. I used 5 gallons Safeway Brand Apple Juice and 2 lbs. dextrose just like the orig recipe calls for, could somebody please give me an estimated starting gravity so I can figure out how potent this stuff is? thanks!

Hey guys ... a little help please. I wanna start by saying that I did not read through all 473 pages. I have a few questions ...

1. If you are planning on bottling still, should you degas? If I don't degas will it be okay to bottle and cork in regular wine bottles?

2. I read a few pages back about preserving the wine and killing off the yeast, is this necessary for extended aging ... say like a year or so?

3. If Im going to carb up some, I don't need to worry about any of that right?

I started a 5 gallon batch of this just over 4 weeks ago (using montrachet) and it just started to clear up. My hydrometer sample read about 1.000 so I think it's about done, and it tasted great! Like white wine, but I actually liked the taste (I usually dislike white wines). I can't wait for it to be carbonated!

Next up I think is going to be some of EdWort's Haus Pale Ale.
