I have a friend that wanted a batch of apfelwein...I made it for him in February..He never bottled it and it went through a hot summer. Maybe 100 or 110 degree's or more. He still has it in a 6 gallon better bottle. What do you think. Is it still good? Friggin idiot!!!

I see that you are kinda new here...>WELCOM!

You will always find that the answer to this question...especially with Apfelwein....is try it. I'd love to have some 7 month old apfelwein.....OH Wait....I DO!

Non still in a carboy that is that old...but it's fine.
go Get it from him...and keep it.

Thank you...I've personally make 6 or 7 batches of Apfelwein. My friend loved it and wanted me to make a batch for him. I spoke with him last week and he said that he's done nothin with it. I told him I'll take it and friggin keg it. I just wanted to know if it's still good.

So it still should be good if it was under very hot conditions??

Apfelwein tastes soooo much better aged. If it didn't hit 100+ degree temps until after it was mostly done fermenting it should be fine.
