Does anybody know why I can't use apple cider and I have to use apple juice? Or is this just a myth?

That sir, is a myth. I used cider to great effect. Some say that cider will make it cloudy forever. Meh. Mine is pitch black. You couldnt see thru it if you had a spotlight. If you are in fact worried about cloudy, just treat it with some irish moss or something similar.

Hey guys I brewed this a week ago. The apple juice I used had ascorbic acid in it. It bubbled a few days then stopped. Most of my other beers bubbled for at least 7 days. 2 or 3 days of rapid fermentation and bubbling then very slow and steady but it appears my graff has just stopped all the way. Should I pitch more yeast or just be patient and see what happens

Did you take a gravity reading? Kinda hard to answer your question without knowing the OG and current SG.

As always, bubbling is not generally considered to be a reliable way of judging fermentation. The best way to tell is gravity readings.

So glad the sourness gets mentioned by several people here, I enjoy a sour, I really enjoyed the flat graff I bottled last Friday but I did wonder if something went wrong.

I added some Welches Raspberry Apple concentrate going into secondary, stuck with the rest of the original recipe. Forgot to do a reading on it though.
