Personally, I don't like the apfelwein talked about on these forums unless it's aged for 6+ months. I've only made one batch of it and that was over a year ago. I still have bottles laying around because they don't get drank. I'm a beer guy. I let mine sit in primary for 8 weeks then bottled it.

He who drinks beer sleeps well. He who sleeps well cannot sin. He who does not sin goes to heaven.

Another HERMS rig...

It really benefits from longer aging. I've just tapped my batch from Oct 09.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
