I used windsor yeast to ferment my first batch last October. Went pretty well with the apple flavor just now coming to the forefront.

You could really use whatever yeast you want if you start it now. You could always rack to another carboy in 4-5 weeks if you're worried about it getting too hot later this summer.

I doubt it will get over 78F, but the D47 high temp range is listed at 68F. Any advice from the yeast/apfelwein experts?
I've been using the Lalvin 71B-1122 for mine and it is quite delicious directly from the semi-cleared carboy at 5 weeks....at 7 weeks, it was clear and even better. Not sure how much of this batch will actually make it to even being bottled!

No he doesn't, if you do you will not get the sulfur smell that people describe.

And by sulfur smell he means WHAT THE ****ING HELL IS THAT ROTTEN EGG SMELL smell. It is truly awful. My first batch you could smell outside.

Oh, Nice! I used the 71b-1122 and pitched it last night...what is your FG with this yeast - does it come out sweet at all?
