Yesterday and today I finished a bottle of Apple Pie. Mmmm Mmmm Good!

I found an old recipe by Wineo in a thread titled “Apple Pie” that I followed. ( not the OP recipe, but the one in the thread by Wineo). The only deviation I made from Wineo’s creation was using the sugar head whiskey rather than a neutral. The sugar head whiskey was aged on oak for one year, and tasted just OK, nothing special. It was a smooth drink with an oak taste, and not much more. I wanted to make it something worth drinking, and I definitely hit the mark.

I’ve not tasted any other Apple Pie recipies, but I am very happy with this one. Tried it warm last night and it was delicious. I refrigerated the bottle and just had a glass tonight. Even better. I have more soaking and when I have another liter ready, I will be trying it carbed, which I have read is the best.

Start with a Quart jar
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup dark brown Sugar
2 cinimmon sticks ( I used 1)
Fill quart jar with sliced apples. Half Granny Smith, half and Red Apple.
Fill jar with neutral spirits ( I used 80 proof sugar head whiskey or as I call it, Oak Tea.)
Turn/shake 1/day for 2 weeks or longer. (Longer is better)
* Pull out the Cinimon sticks after four (4) days.
Pour out and filter
Bottle

I also have a few jars of Apple Pie soaking in some rum. I’ll be opening those in a few more weeks to see what that does for me.

Well cross your fingers for me. Just lit the fire for a second attempt at some watermelon brandy. The wine tasted delicious so I'm hoping the finish will as well.

Preparing for a freeze filtration experiment to make 10 liters of vodka. I know some commercial people are using chill/freeze carbon filters for their vodka. If this experiment succeeds (at least partially) I will make an actively cooled carbon filter as a priority.

Saturday we made 32 Gallons of a North east IPA. No hops at the beginning of the boil but a pound of Mandarina hops with 5 minutes left, Then another pound today, in the fermenter, then one more in 3 days.
And the chloride is near 200 PPM.

I ran a batch of Uncle Jessies today. 6th generation and the 3rd using the same yeast. Every batch runs a little different.

Running 7 gallons of low wines cut with fresh wash from a sweet feed wash. Just got a 5 gallon barrel delivered today. Looks like I’ll be filling it soon.

Ran 6 gallons of mead to make honey shine. So far it's great.

I made a small batch of wheat/barley whiskey that turned out wonderful, with about 1.5 gallons at barrel strength making the cut. First thing I pulled a liter of the heat or hearts for sippin now and it sure tastes delicious.

This batch went into one of my new 1 gallon Badmo style barrels with a medium toast (no char). I just made a new batch of 1 gallon, 1.5 gallon, and 2 gallon barrels and am looking forward to filling them all. :-)

I had 1 liter of spirits left over so I split that in two jars and added a small oak stick to each. One toasted only, and one toasted w/char.

I put 3 quarts of 7th generation Uncle Jessie's on oak. This last batch was different....in a good way. The proof was pretty consistent and the taste as well. Crazy stuff.

Today I split up a bunch of fruitwood sticks for aging spirits. The Plum has been seasoning over a year, and the Apple and Cherry have been out for two years.

I’m not sure if it matters, but I separated the Apple’s heart wood from the rest.
