So after 7 weeks of waiting (4 in carboy, 3 in bottle) I am drinking my inaugural bottle of Apfelwein.

I did it 5 G of Apple Juice, 2.5 of corn sugar. OG of 1.07 (something like that) FG of .096.

Here's the problem. It tastes just like apple soda! Delicious but there is no alcohol in this at all. I am going to give it to my kids for their lunchboxes.

Have fun at school kids.

I see you didn't list yeast as one of your ingredients. Yeast helps.

I have a cider/mead carboy. Right now it is occupied by blueberry cider. The same as noted above but replace 2 gallons of Apple Juice with 10 quarts of pure blueberry juice (Trader Joes) and 2 quarts Blueberry Puree from Oregon Farms (?). Better be delicious because it sure was expensive.

I'm taking a case of 22 oz'ers to a New Year's Party. I worry that people will have my reaction for real.

Oh, I know. I just think about the people who are, like "I don't drink but this stuff is fine . . ."

Luckily the party is in a house with something like 15 bedrooms.

Dontman, what kind of yeast did you use? There is none listed above and without it... apple soda. With it... mmm mmm good!!

Chug it chug it chug it chug it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have at least 3 more pints and post back to us....

(No, I respect Dontman's brewing skills I KNOW he pitched yeast on it)

I just don't think it's taken hold yet....

Anyone wanna place bets on how many glasses til he starts talking about couches on porches and ****?

This thread could be fun!!!

I say he talks $hit until about the third glass. Then we probably won't here from him for a week.

dontman will end up in Vietnam growing rice with no clue how he got there.
