Let me know how you like it when you make it. I might chill out on the apple juice next time and give it a maltier backbone. Next time I'm gonna do it AG and mash on the high side to beef it up.

I just drank one of the last three bottles of this. Man do I wish I let the whole batch age longer. The slight bit of sourness from the apple juice has completely faded and it has smoothed itself out very nicely. I'ma need to remake this soon,

I just finished re-reading the series and was thinking about trying to make some. Thanks for the recipe.

I just finished brewing up a batch of this following your recipe as closely as I could with the ingredients I had available. Hopefully it turns out as well as yours did!

Awesome, let me know how it turns out! It really seems to do well with a lot of time in the bottle.

How long would you suggest in the bottles? I was planning to do 3 weeks in the primary, a week in the secondary to clean it up a bit and finally into bottles for 2 or 3 weeks. Would it do better a few months rather then weeks?

It'll be drinkable as soon as it's carbed for sure, but the flavors will continue to improve for months. The initial tartness will subside and more roasties will come through with more age.

I'm not sure there is much of a description of graf other than it being a "strong apple beer".

Thanks for bringing up the graf thing though, I had forgotten about that. Sounds like it would be great if I could pull it off...

I got around to bottling it today and had a half-pint extra so I tossed it in the fridge and enjoyed it flat, but cold. Got to say its a little on the sour side right now, but still very tasty. I imagine with at least a few days in the bottles its going to be good. I cannot wait for the long weekend!
