What yeast do you use Brandon?

Edit: I'm an idiot, I found it now. Ignore me.

Soon, I just ordered a Coopers ingredient kit, never brewed a Coopers kit before, from Austin Homebrew and added the grain and hop ingredients for a batch of Graff to my order!

I had three gallons of cider sitting around in little one gallon glass bottles. I was going to whip up a batch of cider in my three gallon carboy and use the little bottles for mead. Instead, I went and bought another gallon of juice and am going to make up five gallons of Graff and use the little carboy to do a little mead batch I can then split into one gallon secondaries and try a few different flavoring experiments. This way I get Graff and mead going at the same time as my beer kit. It's pretty much a win, win, win situation for me!

I've been making ciders like crazy lately. I love cider in the summer and the turn around is the same as beer, plus it's easier than all grain.

I just picked up 1 gallon of organic blueberry juice, nothin but blueberries in it. Expensive but I am going to combine it with 3 gallons of fresh pressed apple juice, 2lbs of light DME. steep some crystal 60L and torrified wheat in a gallon and this is gonna be one hell of a blueberry apple cider.

I'm assuming for bottling Graff, you would do so just as with any other beer - either prime with dextrose, or add to individual bottles. Is that right? Looking forward to trying this recipe...

Done and done.

3oz torrified wheat
3oz Crystal 60l (LHBS milled them together while I wasn't watching, doh!)
5g Mott's
3lbs Amber Malt Extract

.65oz Kents Goldings
Nottingham

Everything per Brandon's instructions other than substituting malt extract for DME and the mess-up with the grains. Topped up to 6.5 gallons, should still be able to sneak up and bite you with an OG of 1.06

Interesting. I recently tried a similar experiment... more DME, no specialty grains, and less cider. It was just a bunch of junk I had sitting around. Here's my thread:

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f14/toda...r-brew-113788/

It's about as plain as you would expect, but the yeast did give it some interesting character... especially when the temps got so ridiculously high for a day or two. I think I'm going to do a hop tea with some more cascade, I think it would go well. The hops are pretty much imperceptable at this point.

Dude, let me know how that 3 oz of torrified wheat works out, you should have an amazing amount of head.......like imperial stout poured improperly proportions. i thought 2 oz was a lot.

I just brewed up five gallons of Graff. I'll let you know how it is in a month or so. The hydro sample tasted pretty dang good. I think that malt and those hops are really going to make this nice!!!
