    Brewing up 5G's of this today because it is almost October, and I'm back in the NE after living
    in Hawaii for a long time. It's tough to appreciate an Octoberfest beer in Hawaii when it is
    75* and sun...

    I agree on the yeast cake, I just racked my BrandonO Graff which I made with S-04 and the yeast
    cake was SOLID. WOW!

    Spazzy:1. I am not sure what cell count your Safale US-05 would have per packet, but I pitched
    a full packet of Safale S-04 into my Graff and it is fine. Don't worry, relax and have a
    homebrew.2. I wo...

    Looked in on my graff again today. I took a full hydrometer sample and it settled out at
    1.1018. I drank the sample after, and I like where it ended up a lot. I'd like to try doing
    this with other jui...

    Portland Patrick,I added the 10 lbs of apples directly to the wort recipe that BrandonO
    specifies. I adapted aa apple wine recipe from Jack Keller's wine site. I strained the liquor
    when I racked it a...

    My Graff just got racked into secondary. I had added 10 lbs of sliced apples from a local
    orchard rather than AJ. As part of racking, I pureed the apples and strained/pressed off the
    juice. It is sitt...

    Just made my first batch of Graff. I followed the recipe loosely, and used carapils instead of
    torrified wheat, and used Centennial hops for the boil.I didn't have any apple juice around but
    since it ...

    AHA! I finally got home from sea and contacted the Brewmaster. I got a great run down of the
    hopping schedule, though no exact amounts. They included several hops that were not on the
    original list we...

    I just got home from sea and tried one of the Octoberfast bottles I had put up. I followed
    Biermuncher's recipe to a "T," and used Safale S-04, and wow, this is one tasty brew after a
    few months of ag...

    Salanis,Just finished a Saison, the fermentation wasn't TOO crazy. I agree 100% with
    wonderbread. The 6 Gal fermenter will be fine, and you can always rig a blowoff preventer. I
    also use a small perce...
