Batch 4-001 Bottled: Winter's Flagon

Today, I bottled batch 4-001: Winter's Flagon (OG: 1.060; FG: 0.992; ABV: 9.1%). This batch is apfelwein and a departure from what I normally brew. I was able to get from a 5 gallon batch (6) 1.5L Magnums and (16) Pint Flip-tops.

Winter's Flagon is sour with a distinctive 'Granny Smith' apple aftertaste that is crisp and clean. It is a great winter potable that reminds me (for some reason) of the Pub in the Dragon Lance books. I can well imagine this being served in some fictional bar from which all D&D adventures begin.
