Bottled and sampled tonight. Aged on the lees with no racking until tonight.
Results are... according to the wife... really good. Alcohol tastes fairly raw still, but bottle aging will likely mellow it a bit. But she drank my sample glass, which has never happened, asked for more, which has never happened, and then drank the leftover glass after I filled 5 small bottles. Very sweet and so dark you can't see more than 1/4" into it. Too sweet for me except in small doses, but I think as a dessert wine it will work well. I'll dig out the recipe which is increadibly simple. I'll be starting a couple more batches soon.
No airlock in the first week or so and sit in a large bowl. Fermentation is aggressive to say the least. A 5g batch would probably have blown the windows out of the house :laugh:
My modified appfelwein on the other hand was a failure. Still too weak in the flavor dept for my tastes even with extras added in. Racked and added tanin and acid blend tonight.
