I have added lactose to beer to make it creamier... would that work and when would you add it?

I haven't had it before but it looks good. All types of woodchuck I have had in the past are crystal clear. I would venture a guess that due to the cloudiness this one is more like a wheat Graff type cider.
This would be my first attempt at a trial recipe.
4 gallons cider
1 gallon water
2 pounds wheat lme
belgain ale yeast

Well I doubt it is a graff because it is still gluten free. I'm probably completely off but, my guess would be it is their cider with a Belgian ale yeast. They probably just didn't filter it as much as they usually do.

I've tried it and loved it as well. I'd love a clone recipe as well as a Crispin clone recipe.

I've never had this particular woodchuck but some quick googling suggests it's made with Belgian yeast, coriander, and possibly some sort of orange addition which could be peel, extract, concentrate, citric acid, or maybe even orange juice (I would think this the least likely though) or maybe the citrus is a result of the yeast entirely.

CRock is probably correct that it's less filtered, and that it is gluten free so no wheat or common analog.

Going to try this next week. Will be using some belgian ale yeast, orange zest and coriander. I'll report back on the success

I spoke with some guys from Woodchuck recently and they said it is a Belgium yeast, orange peel and coriander.
Interestingly enough, the farmhouse select also uses the/a Belgium yeast.
I agree, its an excelent cider.

Is this out now? I wouldn't mind buying a 6 pack if it is, but I have to go to another state to buy it since they only sell cases here in PA (where I live that is).
