Yeah thats what I saw too that was a broad margin so I was jw what was ideal. Mine is at 65. And finally started to go steady. Nothing crazy

Ok made my first two 5 GAL batches and I am as excited as a kid in an apfelwein store. I stuck 100% to the original recipe with zero deviation (other than the apple juice brand).

My OG was just under 1.060, sound right? I used the Organic Apple Juice from BJ's.



Reason: spelling

You get to enjoy the farts, cause you know they mean apfelwein is coming! So long as they're only in the basement, that is. I have community basement space, and I wonder what my neighbors think of the stacks of bottles and tons of apple juice i have stockpiled.

Im not sure who it was in this thread that said it but I learned that a damp paper towel over the airlock really does pretty much fix the smell completely.

I'm thinking about racking my 3 gallons of apfelwein (using a 3 gallon carboy) on a can of raspberry puree. My question is would it be ok to rack to a 5 gallon carboy for secondary or would this leave too much head space?

I brewed up a batch of this today but at the last minute I realized my LHBS had given me the wrong yeast. I thought the package was Red Star Montrachet but it was Red Star Pasteur Red.

Not that I can change anything but any thoughts as to whether this will make a difference?
