Default Apple Beer recipe?

Anyone have a working one? I found this one, but a bit skeptical about only 1 quart of juice in 5 gallons of water...how can the flavor possibly carry over diluted that much?

APPLE BEER:

Ingredients:

6 lbs. light malt extract 1 lb honey 1 1/2 oz. Hallertauer hops (flavoring) 1/2 oz. Halletauer hops (aromatic) 1 quart of apple juice (if you haven't made your own, choose an apple juice without preservatives from your grocery store--many preservatives inhibit yeast growth). 2 packages of Nottingham Ale Yeast (make starter).

Procedure:

Boil 5 gallons of water. Add extract and flavoring hops. Boil for 60 minutes. Add honey and aromatic hops and flame-out. Chill to 170. Add apple juice. Top off with water to make five gallons. Chill to 75 degrees and add yeast starter. Rack after one week to secondary. Bottle or keg after fermentation is complete.

Search this forum for apfelwine. I think that's your best bet. It is a crowd favorite apparently.

I do make apfelwein, and lots of it. Apfelwein is not beer.

I'm talking about beer, with hops and the whole nine yards. Read the recipe I posted

Would a bunch of dried apple slices in a mesh bag work? Say, added to the wort at the end of the boil, or maybe in the primary/secondary 1 week before bottling.

Check this out. Pretty much, Unibroue ephemere uses apple must. I would think that you would get the freshest "apple flavor" by using overly-ripen apples vs juice.

Just a thought

Someone on here has made an Apple Bock. I would love to do the recipe but alas no lagerator! Do some searches on that.

I did an apple ale last year with the LD Carlson apple extract. 2 ounces of that per 5 gallons. I also added cinnamon, maple syrup, and a vanilla bean. It was awesome, like apple pie beer.

PM me if you'd like me to dig up the recipe (was extract/steep).

Hmmmm..... Might have just talked myself into doing this all-grain for my next brew. Will be watching this to see other extract-less approaches to the apple flavor...

The next time you make beer, don't strain your hops. Pitch 5 gallons of apple juice onto that yeast cake with 2# of Corn Sugar (just like Apfelwein). When it's done fermenting, transfer to secondary and dry hop with 1 oz of Spalt Hops for 10 days. It's not beer, but it makes the ladies smile.

Ok, ordered some Spalt hops and am going to try this. Do I put them in a grain bag or just dump them out of the bag into secondary? I haven't dry hopped so no idea how this works.

Either way. I just dump them, some people use a hop bag weighed down with sanitized marbles.
