So, little update on my batch. The spiced version I haven't tasted yet, but the regular graff has been bottled close to 2 weeks and I wanted to see how it was progressing.
Gotta say, it tastes pretty darn good already. There wasn't any head to speak of, but it was carbonated. Aroma was that of tart apples and a little white wine-ish.
Flavor is apple up front, a bit tart (but it's a welcome tart, not oppressive), and the back end is alcohol. But again, it's not a hot alcohol flavor, rather, that sort of pleasant warmth. I think I also detect a bit of yeast flavor too, but I've noticed I taste that in my young beer as well, and it usually falls off after 3 weeks of conditioning.
All in all, it's a nice drink. Gonna go great with thanksgiving dinner.
Anyone here use graff like a sparkling cider, to make a "punch?"
