I have been fermenting a batch of Apfelwein for 3 months. I just bottled it up and took a reading and it read 1.000 - 0%. I dont understand why this would happen any suggestions on what could have happened?

Don't know about others, but I use the Indian Summer brand. I've also got some frozen concentrate from Aldi's that I plan to use in the near future.

It fermented.... Don't read the potential alcohol scale when you've fermented. It's all about the og vs the fg. 1.000 means it dried out, which is a good thing!

So I had my parents over for a bit last night and we were playing around with some drink recipes. We came up with this it's simple, easy, and delicious. 8oz apfelwein, 1oz Bacardi silver, and 1/2-1oz triple sec served on the rocks! It was delicious! Also my apfelwein is carbed and kegged. Anyways I encourage everyone to give it a try but be careful it'll sneak up on you real quick!!! Anybody else make any cocktails with this stuff?

Assistance with back sweetening.

My method up to this point has been to let it ferment down to 1.016 and bottle. At 1.01 pasteurize. For this batch, I wanted to add bourbon and oak, ala woodchuck private reserve from the fall.

So, if it ferments all the way down to 1.00ish, how much sugar do I add to back sweeten to 1.01. I figure add that amount plus the normal carbing amount, let it carb then pasteurize.
