We did two things on October 14, 2011.
We made a 5-gallon batch of Apfelwein with ale yeast (Nottingham) and we made a 1-gallon batch of Apfelwein with ale yeast in a carboy, exclusively with brown sugar. The 5-gallon batch was mixed with a majority corn sugar and a little brown sugar to finish out the measurements.
Here’s what we did:
5 oz. brown sugar, boiled in 1 cup water for about 5 minutes.
1 gallon Great Value apple juice.
Pour into carboy.
As always, check its progress under the tag AW Batch #3C (http://brew.wheelerc.org/tag/aw-batch-3c/)
