Made 2 gallons of this 2 months ago. It looks great and is clear but none of the fruit has dropped, can I still bottle it?
Do I need to add anything before I bottle it?
Thanks

If it's clear, as in..you can read a newspaper through it, you could either rack it off to a secondary and let it sit and mellow a bit....or you could bottle.

I made a 5 gallon batch of this on 09/19/09 & it's still not clear. It was still bubbling a few weeks ago, seems to be degassing & getting a little clearer now @ the 3 month mark. Seems the bread yeast is giving a good fight.

I didn't take an OG, anybody have a close figure for OG?

I recorded my original gravity at 1.1 but I think that was before I added the oranges so they would raise it up a bit higher.

I have just about everything around the house for this except the raisins.

One gallon wine jug leftover from Tgiving-check.
3 lbs of honey-check
More bread yeast than a single human being could need in a lifetime-check


The closest I have are Craisins, but not sure I want the tart cranberry flavor. I was thinking of dropping a vanilla bean in there...

The raisins are for the tannins I believe. BUT raisins and craisins would be interesting.

Ok, I had the craisins in my hand and chickened out. For my firstbacth, I didn't want to experiment all that much. I just acquired another gallon fermenter and will be adding the craisins to my second batch. Will let you all know in 2 months. :-)

It is now official. Between Apfelwein and JAOM, my beer is going to be getting jealous. You just can't beat these two recipes for the minimalistic approach to equipment and process, and the near bulletproof nature ot the recipes. Great for first timers and the results are good enough to keep in the rotation.
