    1st Apfelwein

    Made my first Apfelwein (from Ed Wort's recipe) on 6/17/18. Just kegged it last night (9/25). Tastes very good --I'm impressed. Nice, dry, and clear with a hint of apple. Only to get better with age I assume. I followed Ed Wort's recipe exactly except used LD Carlson Cider House select yeast...

I think it's too much of a pain to check the gravity (ie sanitizing the hydrometer and everything), so should I not bother until I can...

    "Apple Pie A La Mode" Cider advice?

    A friend of mine wants to make apple pie a la mode flavored cider. We are both beginners, and our researching efforts have left us with some questions. Is it possible to make this cider thick and creamy? He's considering adding oatmeal (think thick oatmeal stout). I'm wondering about...
