Autumn Apple Ale

Source: Eric Gross
Recipe added: 08/30/00

I made this batch for an upcoming Oktoberfest party, and I just put it in the keg. I have no idea what the alc. % will be, but I suspect it will be fairly high. The first day the beer began to ferment it smelled fairly bad, but since then it has smelled wonderful. When I cracked the bucket to transfer the beer to a keg the smell was heavenly and color was a dark gold.
