    Moonshining

    So after 3 months in fermentation I finally got around to bottling 5 gallons (25 bottles) of apple wine. I had tried the stuff when I was i nGermany a few years ago, and when I looked to buy it online I found it was much cheaper just to make it myself! The stuff tastes great, real authentic. It is pretty much just pure apple juice, sugar, and yeast. About 10% alc by volume now, delicious.
    My girlfriend was even nice enough to design a very chic looking label for all the bottles, just need ot get aorund to printing them out!

    Home wine making is lots of fun. Congrats on your achievement.
    It should be really good by Christmas.

    I used inexpensive gallon sized 100% apple juice from the grocery for mine, tastes how it should, but I've heard of people using different apple and/or cider for different effects

    Watch the store bought apple juice / cider, sometimes it has preservatives in it that can kill the yeast.

    ascorbic acid is the only preservative used that is fine to mix with yeast.....anything else will likely kill it......
