I recently made my second batch of apfelwein, this time with a few tweaks. I added some squirts of honey, I would guess less than 8 ounces, and used Lalvin ec-1118. I plan on reracking it after two months and bottle after 8 months. However, there is a decent amount of lees on the bottom after 4 weeks and I am tempted to do it now. I bottled the first batch after 2 months and there was a lot less. Should I just wait it out?
In Europe...Drinking wine was not a snobbism nor a sign of sophistication nor a cult; it was as natural as eating and to me as necessary.
