WOW this looks tasty. would you mind clarifying a couple things about the recipe?

-I'd imagine you steep the grains for 30 minutes @ 150F.
-boil and add the 4.5lbs of LME
-add hops and cinnamon as suggested.

i'm a little confused about the apples. you add them to the boiling wort and reserve them for primary fermentation? did you use a secondary fermentation stage?

how about OG and FG target?


sorry for all the questions, this looks good and i want to give it a try

Well, my attempt at this failed due to an infection that made it extremely tart, I did add the apples to the wort in a mesh bag, and after the boil added them directly to the fermenter for primary. If i was to do it again i would problably add them at the secondary stage after I added Campden to them. I'm not sure how that would affect things if you bottle condition though. As far as OG and FG, the OG was 1055, and the FG was 1020. It was hard to tell if it that left to much residual sweetness due to how sour the beer tasted.
