I have a quick question that search didn't help me too much with.
Last night at around 10 p.m. I decided to make my first batch of apfelwein using edworts recipe. I used:
- 5 gallons tree top apple juice (same edwort uses)
- 2 lbs corn sugar (dextrose from LHBS)
- 1 package Red Star Montrachet wine yeast
I followed his instructions and put it all in a 6.5 gallon carboy. Sanitized everything with one step cleaner and star-san.
This morning around 10 I checked on it and found my airlock bubbling, and much to my surprise, a layer of krausen-like stuff forming on the top of the juice
I could have swore that I read that Montrachet wine yeast is NOT supposed to form any krausen and only cause some bubbling.
Did I do something wrong? Possibly an infection? I know I'm probably worry too soon and way too much. Just would like some peace of mind
