    Effects of Low Temps.

    Well I went out into the cold garage today and took a sample of my cider. It is very clear and there is no airlock action. Doing a taste test it tastes a little harsh with a strong alcohol taste. I'm thinking it just needs to mellow in the jug for a little longer we'll see :-)

    Well I have been making my second batch of Apfelwine and I have it stored out in the Garage. I started this back in late October when the temps in the Garage were 60-70 degrees.

    What Am I doing wrong?

    Well I unfortunately didn't have access to a hydrometer when I mixed the apfelwein and homemade wine. Now I do never the less it shouldn't just drop like a stone into the tube for every liquid I drop it into...

    What Am I doing wrong?

    Well the 1st hydrometer I was using was a really old one from the 1970's when my Father was experimenting with homebrewing and the other one was just bought from a local homebrew shop. Its a fermtech.

    can I save my too sweet cider

    do you have another gallon jug? if so siphon 1/2 into one and top them off with plain apple juice. that's what I did when I added too much sugar in. Or if your thirsty now mix with club soda. BTW: That stuff you were cooking up back in the day sounds pretty good

    Homebrew limit

    Well I don't see it as being too enforceable for someone brewing 5 or 10 gallons at a time, but if the neighbors call the law because you have a still like Popcorn Sutton's sitting in your garage then you might have a few things to explain. ...:)

    Apfelwein question

    Well in the Apfelwein directions it says to leave the juice sit in the carboy for at least 4 weeks. Not that I'm an expert or anything, but this is different from beer which from I've read usually finishes out in 2-3 weeks.

    Has Anyone tried using Sugar Cubes to Prime ?

    Well I am going to be using either 16oz or 1 liter bottles so 1 cube would be good for a 16oz or 2 for the 1liter. I'm assuming you were talking about standard 12 oz. bottles...
