I just brewer the Austin Homebrew "Apple Peeler" kit. Based on the comments in this thread, I am really excited to try it. It has been in the fermenter since 10/13. My kit used about a half lb of honey malt, 3 lbs of extra pale LME and 3 gallons of AJ. Also used an oz of bittering hops. Can't wait to keg it!
Let me know how it comes out.

Last night, I cracked a bottle after 1 week conditioning. I was giving some to a friend and wanted to taste it for myself. It was still cloudy (I never racked to secondary) which I didn't mind. It was already nicely carbed but another week will do it well. The hoppy aroma threw me off as I was thinking 'this is a cider' but after the first few pulls I realized how complex the malt, cider, and hops were together. The second half of the glass went down quickly. The ABV calculated to 5.8% but it seemed to give a bigger buzz than a beer with similar ABV. I'll have to be careful!

I also just had one after a week in bottles. Definitely on the way. Mine wasn't hoppy at all though, which was working as intended I believe.

Well I'm at 1.020 after 5 days, starting from about 1.050 using safale 04. I've kept the temp around 64 (mini fridge, temp prob). I'm surprise it's not lower. I gave it a stir and eased the temp by 2f.

Any ideas on what's going on here?

Don't stir it anymore. Leave it alone for another week. 5 days isn't long enough to finish fermentation. Mine usually finishes at 1.010. RDWHAHB.

SOAB>[ I just figured out that I doubled my hop addition. And Brandon STRESSED not to add more than .5 oz. I used cascade. I'm 15 mins into my boil. What do I do? Scrap the batch or go with it?

You could make a second batch with no hops and mix them 50/50.
