Im on a number of message boards and you see some odd things, one of them is a college football sim site, and everyone picked one team, and they are all siming the season as the same team to compare how everyone is doing.

I think this is a good idea, since the apfelwine thread has 20000000000 posts, its hard to keep track of what individual brewers are doing. so im starting my own thread.


I am going to bottle my first batch of apfelwine today. its good!! but it is very very dry.

So I wanna make it more sweet. I will be posting my thoughts later today, if anyone has any ideas in the mean time im willing to listen

You could back sweeten with an unfermentable sugar, such as lactose, or splenda.

And, then get ready for the "Darn you, for starting another Apfelwine thread!" post that are sure to follow.

Good luck!

You can "foresweeten" with lactose too. It's doesn't ferment out so it's kind of an add anytime you want ingredient.

You can even add some splenda to the glass when you are drinking it if need be.

That hefe yeast will make for some tasty apfelwein/cider, but be aware that it's going to take 4+ weeks to even finish fermenting! My wyeast 3068 apfelwein still has a healthy layer of krausen on top and i'm in week 5.
