Went apple picking a few days ago and just feel like using some of these to brew a batch. I've already made some applesauce, just added cinnamon, no extra sugar, and it turned out excellent. I can't make juice because I don't have a juicer.

Anyone have any recipes using apple slices or even apple sauce?

Two weeks ago I made a batch of 'Lil Sparky's AG Nut Brown Ale and racked off a couple gallons to make an apple brown betty ale. I added four apples that I'd cut in half and roasted for 30 minutes at 350 along with a tea of brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger that I'd boiled for 10 minutes and let cool. It smelled awesome and I am quite hopeful - I'll know more this weekend when I start checking the gravity to (hopefully) bottle.

The guy I typically brew with makes an apple saison that's pretty darn tasty. He cubes 8 granny smith apples (about 1" chunks) and roasts them until they are lightly carmelized, then adds them in secondary for about 4 weeks. They show up as a nice subtle apple pie kinda flavor in the saison after about 3-4 more weeks of cold conditioning.
Primary #1 - Midnight Ryeder (Midnight Wheat and Rye)
Primary #2 - Florida Weiss
Primary #3 - Kane-DOH APA (Honey Citra APA)
Secondary #1 - Downtown Flanders Brown (brewed August 2012)
Keg #1 - Raspberry Florida Weiss
Keg #2 - Cinnamon Raisin Cider
Keg #3 - NONE!
Bottled - NONE!
