New Batch: 4-002 Apfelwein

I was wandering around Wal-Fart today and chanced upon Musselman's Apple Cider for $1.50 per gallon. I was forced to capitalize and make a new batch of Apfelwein. Here is the recipe:

5 gallon apple cider
2 lbs dark brown sugar
1.12 oz apple pie spice
1 pkt Red Star Montrachet
OG: 1.068 (potential ABV: 10.4%)

Mmmm.. tasty! I also joined the local homebrew club this week: Ale-ian Society. Come on by the forum and drop me a line!

what sort of yield are you looking at for that amount of ingredients? I get the feeling that even though you're putting in a good amount of ingredients, you get a lot less out of it.. Is that true?

I should get about 4.5 gallons of sweet Apfelwein. Yep, that is 4.5 gallons of hooch for less than $10.
