There's a fine line between apple wine (apfelwein) and apple cider. Ed's recipe uses wine yeast and finishes as high as 9.5% alcohol with a dry, wine-like flavor. Maybe someone else can define it more clearly.

I just figured Ed Wort put it where he wanted it and because he is Ed Wort, he can do whatever he wants. :D
My Thoughts Exactly! We are ALL indebted to him for this fantastic drink.

BECAUSE!

A thought...
"Cider" is made with raw unfiltered cider?
Apple wine is made with apple juice?

Sorry buffalo I would definitely disagree, because both cider and applewine can and are made from both what us Americans call cider and juice.
