On January 31, I started a batch of Apfelwein, loosly based off of EdWort’s Apfelwein. I had intended to use a small amount of it as a test to try out a strain of wild yeast that I had cultivated last April.  After stepping up the starter and tasting a sample of the beer that I had poured off, I decided to use the yeast for the entire batch.  This yeast had a very sweet flavor and a fruity smell to it.

After starting the Afpelwein, I decided to try my hand at a time laps video.  This video consists of over 4000 photos taken over the first 48 hours of the fermentation.  It’s been compressed down to less than 4 minutes.
