    whats floating on my apfelwein

    I made some apfelwein a while back and when I bottled it up I made up a 5L batch of spiced apfelwein using bayleaves, peppercorns, coriander seeds, cinnamon quill and cloves.

    imperial chrisrmas stout

    I ended up puting 1kg of brown sugar in my last stout and its still got a really full on molassesy flavour that I'd like to avoid in this brew... And I've done my first boil now ill be stepping up to steeping next so I'll probably use some choc malt and some fuggles at 60min, 30min and 5min

    Apfelwein Preferences

    Did my first batch to original recipe but using SN9 which has cleared well but smells boozy and for my second batch I've added a small amount of tannins, acid blend, nutrient salts and left out the extra sugar and I'm using t-58 Belgian ale yeast as an experiment.

    kolsch but not quite...

    Yer I know it won't be an actual kolsch I'm just looking for that nice clean, clear and light style. The hops were my main concern so that takes a load off, what do you think of the yeast selection I've been told that although t-58 could work it might be too peppery....
