I'll be caramelling and bottling next week. Any suggestions on how long after bottling/pasteurization to wait before it's good to drink?

it's good "immediately" but continues to get better with a bit of time. plan for the standard 3 weeks but don't be worried about having one here and there before then

Very interested in giving this a try. The apfelwein was hit and miss with the ladies, a bit too dry for some. Liquid apple pie sounds like just the ticket. Anybody that has had both have any thoughts on the difference?

If you read Upstatemike's original post/page you'll see that he won the "booby prize"......I haven't seen that on any Apfelwein post. Just sayin'.

I saw that, but one set of ta ta's isn't definitive.

LOL. Agreed. But I have to say it's a damn good start To date, I have not yet enjoyed that experience for my recipe. Close. But usually they have to drink quite a bit of it

For the contest next March, I will insist on panties as payment for bottles of cider. That way I can honestly say I have a batch of liquid panty remover.

I really want to make this - it sounds amazing! I've been reading through a lot of cider threads and many mention using frozen concentrate. I've not seen this in the supermarket here in Australia - is there an alternative?
