This took 1st Place at the 2007 Alamo City Cerveza Fest BJCP sanctioned competition for the Cider and Apple Wine Category and 2nd Place for Best of Show for Meads & Ciders!
5 Gallons 100% Apple Juice (No preservatives or additives) I use Tree Top Apple Juice
2 pounds of dextrose (corn sugar) in one pound bags
1 five gram packet of Montrachet Wine Yeast
5 Gallon Carboy (I use a Better Bottle)
Carboy Cap or Stopper with Airlock
This is the recipe that I used for the Apfelwein that I brought to pn0x0b this past weekend. It's also the same recipe that Skydog used for his batch (that got added in to my keg after it ran dry). It's about the easiest possible way to make tasty alcohol, and is approximately 8.5% alcohol by volume, so it will knock you on your keister with no problem.
