Mmmm and to think of all those frozen food tastes seeping into the frozen worts.

Ever get a foul tasting ice cube from the other frozen food in the freezer? Nothing like turkey tasting beer.

I know this isn't exactly what you have in mind, but check out this link to a discussion of "prison wine" which is also an ad hoc combination of ingredients:

This is more like Apfelwein.. I want to try the Apfelwein recipe with something other than apple juice, I'm not a big fan of apple juice.

I came back to edit my post, I knew it would mis-understood. My apologies I'm very much looking forward to a cup of apfelwein.

So can I make it with a different fruit juice? Or would it still not be apfelwein?

It requires apple juice to be considered apfelwein. Have you tried it before? I'm fairly certain you could despise apple juice and still enjoy this drink. I like grape juice and hate red wine, so why can't it work in reverse?

Back on topic, I'd be curious to see how something like that would taste. If you actually have the free time to do this, then I say go for it. I'd personally use the time to make good beer, but for the sake of science, it could be interesting. You will probably need to equip yourself with some DME to get any sort of respectable ABV out of it though.

No I haven't tried it yet. I'm thinking of making 1gal of it in a Carlo Rossi wine jug. Not sure on how to divide the yeast though..

I hope EdWort doesn't read this and bust a vein...Apfelwein has very little in common with prison wine, other than being a fermented beverage. It's really good stuff, and it's hard to believe such a refined product can be the result of such a simple process.

Don't worry about not liking apple juice, as completed Apfelwein is VERY dry, and bears very little resemblance to the juice it's made from. I've had a few people taste it and not even realize it was made from apples. The most common comparison is to champagne...personally, I like it more than most champagne.

EdWort, if you do read this please pardon my ignorance. I was simply making a relation to the simplicity of the process. No way did I want to ridicule apfelwein. Also bear in mind I'm pretty new to this. I just sort of realized that a lot of you really understand the quality of the products you're producing.

Damn you guys have me feeling all guilty about it.. I'll have to make the first batch from apple juice.
