With all the talk of Edworts Apfelwein has given me the bug. I was looking to make something a bit sweeter and had a couple of questions. My recipe as follows:
6 cans of apple juice concentrate
18 cans of water (when reconstituted, will equal 2.25 gallons)
1 lb. dextrose
1 pk. Lalvin EC-1118 yeast
Let ferment about a month
When ready to bottle prime with 1/2 can concentrate and then bottle
Overall, does this recipe look good, or should I reduce the dextrose a bit. If I used an ale yeast, would it come out any sweeter? And will a 1/2 can concentrate be right to prime, or will I get bottle bombs.
