I made 10 gallons of Ed's recipe back in 2007 & have enjoyed every last drop of it. I started another 5 gallons Sept 19th. On October 19th, I moved to secondary and decided to get fancy with it. I added:

3/4lb Golden Raisins (bought sunmaid, had to soak/rinse)
2lb Raw Sugar
1.5lb Clover Honey
2 x 12oz Apple Juice concentrate
~8 cups water to dissolve
and re-pitched some Montrachet for good measure

I'm excited to see how my additions in secondary effect the flavor. Now I just have to wait.

Anybody try serving it hot? Maybe with some cinnamon and nutmeg?

I'm thinking about bringing some 'witches brew" to a Halloween party.

if you check out Ed's first post (the one with the recipe on pg 1,) at the very end of his thread, he has a suggestion for a grog.

That's a good question. We have a big party we're going to this weekend and I was planning on bringing some of my apfelwein but wasn't sure everyone would enjoy it just straight up. Usually someone would have a hot drink at the party so something like this would be perfect. Maybe some sort of spiced hot cider mixed in as well or something.

I've got that from people. Tastes like a cheap home made wine. I reply, no it's cider. Not wine. I've never heard of cheap cider. I can agree with you that it's better after a minimum of two months and is damn near amazing at 6 months. That's the oldest I've ever tried it or as long as I could keep it w/out drinking it.

I went to my LHBS, and when I asked for "dextrose" they said "sure, we have that" and gave me a bag labeled "corn sugar." same thing?

Thanks! Google just told me that too, but I wanted to hear it from an actual brewer. My LHBS isn't always the friendliest, and I was afraid to ask. She's mean!
