Back when I had Federnweisser, we just got juice from a winery and waited for it to ferment naturally. And yes, this stuff was awsome.

Onion cake and green fermented beverages. Are you familiar with the term Scott Pack?
*laughing. *still laughing. ROTFLMAO. That is so funny. I guess you would have to know my inlaws to understand why.

Yeah, it creates a scene reminiscent of the Blazing Saddles Campfire. It's a very tasty combination.

I just started a batch this morning. O.G. is 1.080. Next Thursday, we'll see what it's like and I'll check the gravity again.

I'll post pics of the Zwiebelkuchen.

You have us all hanging brooms over our doors.

Good God Ed, admit it. You are the Ambassador of Germany right? Or the Minister of Cultural Affairs? Or an insane millionare with a diabolical plan...

to create a zombie army of German Caterers.

You've brainwashed us and you're going to send a coded email to awaken the GermanFest Tactical Catering Team. We'll arrive in Austin with our goods an assigned roles, flawlessly preparing German delicacies and speaking fluent German even though some of us have never spoke a word of it.

In a week, we'll remember nothing but will have smiles on our faces and 10,000 extra calories in our guts.

Please Ed, I beg you. Let me be awake!

or is the German Mother-in-Law the mastermind? Hmm....






Seriously.
Thank You for helping me express my 1/4 German heritage.

But the point is that there will be many on this board versed in some German specialties. A fest is in order.

Ed,
You've not mentioned Eiswein (Ice Wine) yet. Had some in Toronto once but know the history of it came from Germany. Cool how it's made. Outrageously expensive. How much for a quality bottle over there?

FYI - Not homebrewer achievable...

EDIT - After an internet search the price was a lot more in the 80's. I was out to dinner with a president of a canadian corporation where he bought two bottles for dinner @ $300 a pop.

Why are you threatening Ed? Do you really want him going crazy trying to figure out how to make this at home?
