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...

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....

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Maui Brewing Big Swell IPA

Anyone have a clone for this beer? It has been a favorite of mine for the past year or so. I've tried one shot at it with 85 percent two row, 10 percent munich, 5 percent Crystal 40. Hopped with...

I regularly ferment above 80 F here in HI without too much in the way of ill-effects. It really depends on the yeast, though. What are you using? I know I would have let it go and see how it turns...
