If i had the capacity to ferment all 15 cool enough, id probably go with that. The 1 gallon mash is just ridiculous. but i havent checked yet to see how much better it is!

Enjoy your graff...it's the best cider I've tasted!
Of course it comes to your house...WHEN YOU ORDER IT!


I just bottled the other day. Warm and uncarbed it tasted good but a bit tart. I'll give another update when it's cold and carbed.

I just finished my last bottle (always the best!) and it was really really great. The first bottles were awesome of course, but it really took about 2 months in the bottle for the torrified wheat to kick in and the tart character to fade out.

The last bottle was creamy, smooth, with a rich dense head. Awesome! Must brew more of this immediately.

I just sampled mine after 3 weeks in primary.. It tasted OK, not crazy about it.

Kind of regretting using wyeast 3068.. Anyone have good results doing this recipe with wyeast 3068?

I just pitched the yeast on my first batch of this cider!

Except.

I think I put 1/2 pound of torrified wheat on accident.

I was at the LHBS and buying a lot of grains in half pound increments. Cruise control ya know.

Damn it!

So, should I dump this one out? How bad is it gonna be with 8Xs the amount of torrified wheat?

In my batches its taken a while for the torrified wheat to really take effect, like by the 4th week you can really tell its there. I'd probably just try to drink it young, maybe not prime it too much. and pour it very very carefully haha. but no sense in pouring it out, its just an experiment right?

If you have an open primary you could start another batch (you'll be glad you did anyway) leave out the torrified wheat and then combine the two. It's still a heck of a lot of wheat, but it will help.

Otherwise enjoy a frothy, frothy brew!

I think I'll start over. So I lose $40 in juice and grain, better than waiting 4 weeks to have 4 gallons of crappy beer.

I would atleast see what happens, when else would you purposefully want to experiment in the most insane amounts of head retention imaginable? but either way i hope it eitehr turns out okay, or your next batch is more successful

I agree with Sweetpoetatoe, just drink it early and enjoy My best bottle was at 8 weeks, but it was also the only bottle left since week 3 XD
