Holy freaking crap! Is this thread still going? I take a two month break, come back and it's up to 81 pages.

Nice job Ed, I think you've turned more people on to a recipe than anyone else here. I know I have about a half a keg of it myself right now.

Try some mapfelwein. It's like apfelwein, but about 4 times stronger.

My first batch is still going....

Mine is at 5 weeks and 3 days. Pitched on Jan 7th. The thing is bubbling up to 14 bubbles per minute. (@55'F)

I was shooting for a 3/1 drinking date. SWMBO Birthday!! I'm gonna miss the target by a long shot. Hopefully by then it will have stopped fermenting and started clearing.

My first batch is finally in the keg! It is six weeks old today. At four weeks it was still bubbling about once a minute, but was starting to clear. Gravity sample was a .998, which was plenty dry for me. I sorbated it and added some potassium metabisulfate and isinglass.

Over the next two weeks it became crystal clear and there was no more airlock activity. The taste is very wine like with just a hint of apple still present. I think it will be great once chilled and carbonated. Since the yeast are dead I can back sweeten if I find that it is just too dry. Time will tell.

Holy!This stuff is mighty potent.SWMBO,who drinks a few beers a day at least and never seems to get drunk(as opposed to me on my lips after 3or4),had 5 bottles of this stuff last night and was HAMMERED!I don't think i'd ever seen her that high.
I seriously thought she was ill from one of her MS meds or something.I was pretty loaded after 2 bottles and switched back to beer.Anyways,we have respect for this stuff now....dangerously tasty!
Cheers

If you didn't see the other thread, so far there is 444 gallons made to date.

It might need its own dedicated section.

It's like Cartman in the trapper keeper episode. It just keeps growing, consuming everything in it's path.

Seriously, I know why. We've all been jonesing for a good cider recipe and they've been few and far between up to this point.

It really is growing on me, it's what I was drinking tonight. It's not cider, though -I don't know exactly why, but it's definately wine, not cider.

When I first drank cider in the UK. Strongbow. It was like drinking wine, bitter apple juice, after 3/4 mug. I was diggin' it pretty much. Cider tasting...

Got rubber legs real quick hoppin' off the stool to go break the seal.

It sneaks up on you because it gets really drinkable.

Schlenkerla,
That was my exact same experience with strongbow, 3 pints very fast in an irish pub not feeling much, stood up nearly dropped. Ok, I was a lightweight, I had just turned 21.
