I think that apfelwein would be a good first batch, It's really easy to make and comes out great. You're gonna have to be patient though. Give it a good month of fermentation and some time to age after fermentation.
Edwort's Apfelwein is EXTREMELY popular around here. Most people generally have it around.
It would be a good first brew because you need proper sanitation and fermenting conditions. Other than that no brewing. So it would break you into those aspects by themselves before throwing in brewing aspects. I don't count apfelwein as brewing though. Just pouring.
I see mention in the original directions about storing at room
temp of 75 deg. First off the house is around 68-70deg but
I was actually planning on leaving in the garage. I live in
Northern California but it does get chilly in the garage.
