Is this going to be drinkable?
Only you shall find out haha but I'm guessin it's gonna be pretty darn dry. Keep us updated for sure!

sorry, why would you not want either or both milled, is it because you have your own mill?

I just pulled a sample of this that is 1 week into fermentation. IT TASTES AMAZING. Great smell, not too dry, and has a body of an ale. 7 more days in the primary then I prime and carb er' up for a few weeks.

Brandon O- Thank you for this recipe. I'm a huge DTS fan and this recipe is what actually got me into homebrewing.

Keep us posted! I just discovered this recipe after a couple years of brewing but I read my first DTS book when I was 10 or 11...now I have to go read them again! But this time I can wash em down with real graf!

BTW...anyone tried making a sour graf? I blended a Brett Saison and Apfelwein and it was fantastic but I wonder if it will be as good brewed together rather than blended post fermentation.

I have a question or two. I've never brewed anything. I am going to try and make the Graff. My first question is. when and how do you add the carbonated to his drink? and what do you use to carbonate it?

Your yeast will do that for you. If you add a small amount of sugar and bottle. The yeast eats the sugar and produces CO2. The CO2 can't get out of the bottle and disolves into the beer.
