    Apfelwein ?

    Sure you could add it to the secondary. I would probably just use one stick of cinnamon for a gallon. I tie a string around my cinnamon sticks and suspend them in the wine. I use the rubber bung to secure the loose end of the string.

    Apfelwein ?

    Thanks Allie. Yes I have not had a lot of time to spend online lately but I try to check back in every so often.

    Apfelwein ?

    I back sweeten mine with sugar. For a five gallon batch I add 3 - 6 inch cinnamon sticks to the primary.

    Bottling Skeeter Pee w/tea

    I guess time will tell if it will spoil. I mixed and bottled a whole batch (5 gal) - 10 gal mixed. As good as it tastes I don't think it will be around long enough to spoil. I like that the alcohol is now around 5% that puts it around an average beer. I used instant tea. I made 5 gallons of tea...

    Bottling Skeeter Pee w/tea

    Thanks Arctic. I see on the website where the skeeter pee itself has been bottled but my concern is bottling it after it has been blended with the tea. I am wondering if I should be concerned with shelf life since it has been diluted by half?

    Bottling Skeeter Pee w/tea

    So I made a batch of skeeter pee and decided to see what it would taste like if I mixed some of it with iced tea. After stabilizing the pee I mixed it 50/50 with the tea and sweetened to taste. The taste was great, kind of like a hard Arnold Palmer. :d By mixing it 50/50 that would make it about...

    Musty smell to White Grape wine

    Hello Nicpay... You didn't mention the current state of the wine. Is it bottled, aging in a carboy, or is it still in a bucket, etc?

    Hot Cinnamon Wine Ideas?

    Thanks St Allie that is definitely an option I could look at. Maybe I will put together a 1 gal. batch and see what happens.

    Hot Cinnamon Wine Ideas?

    Looking for ideas to make a Hot Cinnamon wine. Something that would taste similar to red hots or the atomic fireball candies. I am thinking that coming up with the cinnamon flavor shouldn't be a problem but where does the heat come from? I don't think cinnamon oil is an option because it...

    Corking 101

    I don't soak my corks. I just sanitize them with some one step. I use natural #8's with a hand corker. I put my bottles back in the box with the dividers and then I cork them. The box helps to steady them and keeps them from moving when you cork them. So far no problems but then again my wine...

    Anyone ever pitch yeast from a past primary onto new must?

    I have done this a couple of times with Apfelwein. It worked great for me. Yeast was Montrachet.

    What is K-meta

    I am looking through the recipes and a lot of them call for K-Meta. Is this the same as campden tablets? Any differences? I have been using campden. Thanks
