Having read it all, I actually don't remember seeing that. Default to brown.

I have used concentrate, most of the cheap apple juice you use is actually from concentrate anyway.

Anyone used liquid malt extract? Last time I did this, I followed the original recipe exactly and it was great! This time my LHBS was out of dry, so I picked up 3.3lbs of LME. I've read that its 1.25:1 for LME : DME so I'm gong to use 2.5lbs. Any issue there? I'm also switching over to C120 so I'm a bit worried about residual sweetness with the LME.

The plan tonight is to make 5g exactly like the first time, and 5g with some different hops and darker extract, closer to the http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f78/guns...-graff-147726/ recipe.

Anyway, I went to buy a total of 4oz of torrified wheat (2oz per batch) and I ended up with 4oz per batch! It's already crushed so I'll probably just got for it, but now I'm worried :/

Love this stuff! Anyone on the fence should really give it a try while there is still fresh cider to be had

I use LME. I just chuck in a 1.5kg can and be done with it. Still turns out great.

I bottled my cherry graff today after three weeks in primary. The pound of lactose gives it a heavy mouthfeel like juice, which is great. There's still a bit of tartness, but once it's carbonated, further conditioned, and chilled I think it's going to be quite drinkable. I also added an equivalent to 3/4 cup sugar from sucralose, and carbs for 3 volumes CO2.

Just put my first batch into the primary last night. No signs of fermentation yet, but it is a little cold in the basement ~58*. I used nottingham yeast and their webpage says recommended temp for fermentation is 57-70* with a good tolerance down to 54*, so I think it will be fine.

I did pitch rehydrated yeast, so hopefully I will get some sings soon.

One quick question, for those who keg this, have you tried different levels of carbonation? If so, where do you carb yours at?

are you a bit worried about bottle bombs at 3 volumes?
