Right now I'm **** faced off of Ed's apfelwein.
This is like the.. I dunno, third or fourth night in a row. I'm eternally indebted to that man.
Avoid the temptation to modify it (unless you sub Brown sugar...) until you've had it the first time. I thought cinnamon would go well with it in the beginning, but now I'm wondering if peach wouldn't better.
Just give it some time... You'll experience the joy soon enough. BTW... Have you started a new batch?
