I think you should look in the recipe section, and look at Brandon O's Graff recipe. I know it's a long thread, but I tried the caramel apple recipe and wasn't impressed. It was drinkable, but not what I was looking for.

I was interested in something like this as well. Has anyone tried adding caramel extract at the end? I've read of people adding extracts to beer.

Default Caramel Apple

At the grocery store you can buy a sugar-free caramel syrup that you add to coffee. Back-sweeten your cider to however sweet you want it and then add one to two teaspoons of the caramel syrup per gallon. The syrup has a strong caramel aroma, so you don't want to over-do it. Just a hint of caramel is all you need.
