It sure does look tasty. Woke up this morning to some bubble action in the airlock! Couldn't be more proud. I will give a report on this one for sure!

Wow a bunch of jokers huh?

Just some info, if you use Wyeast 3068 rig a blow off tube. I was told you really didn't need one, but at least with this combonation I am getting a lot of foam.

What a coincidence! I made this in the summer and just cracked the first bottle of it 3 days ago!

My recipe was a bit different.
1 gal batch
75% Apple juice
25% Cranberry
1.5 cups dextrose (i think, going from memory without my brew-book on hand)
1 can frozen apple juice concentrate for the back sweeten.

It ended at about the 6% mark, but I'm still a bit fuzzy on how percentages work when you back sweeten. It finished fermenting very dry, but with the back sweetening it has a very nice sharp flavour. VERY hard to put down.

I served it at my housewarming party on Saturday and it was a big hit. I only have one bottle left, but I am going to do a full batch over the holiday season.

Sounds like your in for a nice treat in the new year vvolf!

Glad to know it came out good. I have high hopes for this. Did you also use Wyeast 3068?

I think the smallest batch I would make is 3 gallons.

Just ordered a Okanagan Peach Icewine Style kit for my wife. It makes 3 gal.
