I started brewing beer a few years ago and wanted a place to post my progress.

Impromptu brew day today. After reading up on EdWort's Apfelwein, I had to make some. This is so much more simple to make then beer.
5 Gallons of 100% Apple juice, 2 lbs Corn Sugar (NOT TABLE SUGAR!!!), 1 package of Wine yeast. No boiling, no mashing, nothing. Let it sit in the fermenter for 4-6 weeks, keg and let it sit for another 4-6 weeks. Drink, but do so carefully since it should be around 9% ABV. I'll post about it again once its ready so my volunteer taste testers will be ready to pounce.
