    Love honey beers and have made the original several times. IMO, the addition of 1/3 Honey malt
    really imarts a true honey flavor as the actual honey ferments out completely dry.

    Okay, I keep a house cider on tap at all times and the best advise I can give (if you keg) is
    use the standard recipe and then vary the final product by adding your favorite fruit flavor. I
    usually do...

    IMO, the problem is most likely adding the wheat extract(dry or liquid) to the boil to soon, I
    used to have the exact same issue. I now take the kettle off the burner for just about 1 minute

    I have made several different versions of Graff cider and usually add 1 cinnamon stick during
    last 5 min of boil and 1 after primary fermentation completes(I let it sit in the secondary for

    Works like a charm...if you keg. You bleed off the oxy anyways, never had an issue with

    For those who don't already have a system for fruiting the wort in the secondary carboy, a good
    trick is to tie a sanitized grain bag around top of carboy and dump your berries into the bag
    and just r...

    Yea, figured I'd ask. The whole foods here sells an organic fresh pressed spiced cider and it
    tastes awesome, but I don't know how well the spices and whatnot would stand up to primary
    fermentation. I...

    For what it is worth!Just finished off a batch of tart cherry cider based on the regular graff
    recipe but once fermentation has completed I racked into my keg over 16 oz tart cherry
    concentrate and 1/...
