Default My first Apfelwein

Ok, so curiousity got the best of me and tonight I brewed an Apfelwein using EdWorts recipe but I cut it back.

3 Gal apple juice no additives, no preservatives
1 pound corn sugar
1 packet Montrachet yeast

Now for the hard part, waiting
When I pitched the yeast it has now all gone to the bottom.
Is this a bottom fermenting yeast?

Can't wait to try this during the cold winter nights here in Montana, maybe after a day of snowmobiling to relax.

Good job. Now, just be patient. Go get another fermentation vessel and start another batch. You'll thank me later.

Into the brew 36 hours and have a nice fermentation going
I think EdWort is right, I should start another batch. This is the easiest brewing I have done.

We keep 2 5 gal carboys alternating. Ed is right, get more going.
