it also tastes different if you have three pints in a row too..then it's pretty awesome.

So what would happen if you subbed in all Apple Juice and NO water? Would that sweeten it up some?

All righty! I'll wait another week and have three pints in a row, then report back.

Cheers

Needless to say I've done the same thing with the Graff. After two weeks it's carbinated great.....but I must say I'm underwhelmed by the taste. It's not that its bad...it's just that so far I'm not saying, "Wow...I gotta have another one of those". Should I really expect much more change in taste in the following weeks???

Cheers.
I've done two batches, learning to sip this stuff. The second I had other things to drink and let it sit on the right tap for a few weeks, MAN was is smooth! You really had to "sip" it. BrandonO's Graff was so smooth that before you knew it, two pints were gone down your throat, you better have a backup plan. I need to make a batch....I am building a brew tree and will not brew until it is done. BUT! I can do a batch of graff right off the stove..hmmm

One word! Wow!!!!!! The first batch has been in bottles for 2 + weeks. It tasted so good when I put it in the bottles that I couldn't wait for the normal 3 + weeks that I usually do. I had the first 12oz bottle the other night and got a nice warm, nearly buzz, after one! Took 6 to poker the other night and a few of the near alcoholics had some and were surprised how smooth it was and then double surprised by the kick! Next batch I will take some gravities so I can put a number on it. Even green the Graff is Excellent!!!

Thanks Brandon

Been wondering what to make for my first batch after a 7 year break from brewing.

Going to get a batch of this going tomorrow.

Got a couple gallons fermenting away.

Cash was a bit short, so I used some LME over DME as it is less than half the cost. Bought the cheapest juice I could find (Target brand aka Archer Farms).

Did not use any hops this time around, will try that with the next batch.

I just brewed my second batch of Graff. It tasted amazing going into the fermenter. Just 6 weeks until I get to slam one back.... Mmmmmmm! I can't wait! I used .5oz kent goldings hops this time and it seems to be a bit less bitter. We'll see come Halloween.
