cider is in the wine family so it still applies. besides it is best not to try to define/categorize wine/cider as it will create a huge argument.

Mmm...I don't know. The English in me is weeping.

But, like you say. It's pretty much brewed the same way, so I shall.

The english in you should weep, cider is a fine english tradition I just know that "what is cider" is a hot button topic, and people get crazy over trying to define it

Don't say the c word. It does sound like your apple based beverage could stand to drop a few more points.

After 3 months it's still fermenting down? That seems like a very long time, unless it was kept pretty cold.

Newbie stupid question, ready. Apfelwein can be bottled in a wine bottle because of no CO2?
