I had some spare time today so I swung by the homebrew store at lunch and Shoprite on the way home. My first 5 gallons of Apfenwein are in the carboy.

Thanks. I'm like a nervous father waiting for the first bubbles. I normally get the yeast going in a starter batch the night before. This was a whim so I just threw it together.

I just saw your Youtube Apfelwein on tap video. My mouth is watering.

I got that years ago at a local home brew store that is long gone. You can find similar carboy jackets on the internet.

It's nice and clear now. I have to bottle this weekend. I sampled the stuff I made in 1 gal containers. Surprisingly dry considering the OG was 1.060 I wonder how it will age.
