Apfelwein. I love me some skeeter pee, but Apfelwein is a top shelf, age it out and love it wine where skeeter pee is just an outback playin horseshoes hard lemonade.

I've never had skeeter pee, but Apfelwein is the bomb especially aged.

My wife loves the apfelwein. My wife's friends love the apfelwein. Therefore, having apfelwein on tap means that I have spousal support to brew, and have get togethers at the house.

Make the apfelwein then do the skeeter pee on the apfelwein yeast cake. Can't go wrong.

I'm in the minority, I find nothing redeeming about Apfelwein. Never had Skeeter and it sounds like I'd rather make an Oktoberfest.

You know.. I voted apfelwein but on consideration I should have said skeeterpee, and my consideration is thus:

Skeeterpee can and should be drunk young. Apfelwein has an aging curve in which it improves greatly. So if you make the skeeterpee and then start the apfelwein as soon as the pee hits secondary, you should have much wonderful things to drink back-to-back, with the apfelwein just hitting its stride as you finish the last of the pee (this is a BS possible scenario based on an assumption regarding how fast you drink lol)

Default One or the other... nah I say both.

I vote for making the apfelwein first let it go for a few weeks, the put in secondary. Then toss the skeeter pee in on the cake, this will drastically reduce the additional steps to get the skeeter pee started. I have done a number of times and it works great. You will get your apfelwein started first since it need time to mellow and your skeeter pee will be finished just in time for spring.
