Tasted and moved to secondary today after 12 days. Tasted awesome and had a gravity reading of 1.012 after an OG of 1.080 the ABV is 9.1% and it is super smooth.

This thread popping up for the first time in awhile made me pick some of the original up on the way home, and made me want to brew this. I haven't had this probably since whenever I last posted in this thread...So it's all your faults.

I think you'll find that your ABV is higher than you think. Don't forget that the OG does not include the muscat concentrate. From information I found it should add about 17pts in 5gal. Including this your ABV calculations yield a value around 11%. Your results seems similar to mine. If the FG would be around 1.026 as the book states, we'd be right around the 9% range.

Someday I will try this again but not until I have a detailed attack plan on how to stop the FG at 1.026. To still be able to bottle condition the choices are limited. Maybe do an all-grain version with a high mash temp? Now that I keg I'm leaning towards cold-crashing when it hits the 1.026 range then racking off the yeast to the keg. This may be overly sweet though... Guess only way to tell is to keep tweaking until perfected. Good luck!

I made this recipe different than it is on here, me and my buddy couldn't find muscat grape juice so we steeped our grains And added Pilsen light LME and added liberty hops at 60 min and continually added Nelson Sauvin hops for the last 15 min. It gave it the wine like fruity taste without the grape juice. It's not finished but it tastes really good right now. I think it's really close to the store bought but I'm not opening my last bottle till I'm ready to compare. i think it's gonna be pretty spot on even without the juice the ABV is dead on, and the taste is dangerously good even without being carbonated.

I compared my brew to the DFH and its defiantly missing the grape concentrate but it is still a great low IBU beer and I'm defiantly going to make it again.

I made a 3-gallon batch of this, and it's fermenting at Day 6 right now. A couple of learnings so far:

1) Didn't want to spring for Alexander's Muscat concentrate, so I looked for a grocery stores equivalent. Ta-da: Welch's White Grape Juice concentrate, available in some stores (got mine in Safeway). White, not purple, because of the color. We'll see how it turns out. It may be a bit more "grape"-y than using muscat concentrate, and if does turn out grape-o-rama-riffic, perhaps scale back next time.

2) Added the grape juice concentrate on Day 5. This made the krausen go crazy. Like, the 3-gallon batch in a 5-gallon bucket is touching the lid today (Day 6). So, be prepared for that to happen maybe. I'm using US-05 BTW.

3) Didn't add saffron. The recipe's small amount won't affect the taste one way or another. And the beer is already yellow, so ... meh. Although if we're futzing with the recipe anyway, and want the beer to be yellow-yellow instead of beer-tan-yellow, some may wish to consider turmeric as a cheaper alternative, if you already have some lying around from Indian cooking, for example. Warning, though: it does have a more assertive flavor than saffron. Sort of mustard-rutabaga-ish. Since I already altered the grape juice component, I didn't screw with adding turmeric here. Too many variables.

We'll see how it turns out.
