I'm trying a version of Apple-Cherry Graff that sits at the same OG. It's 1 Gal "wort" 3 Gal apple juice (Tree-top from costco, Vit C added), 1 gallon cherry juice from the farmer's market and 2 oz liberty hops. How much cherry flavor seeps through on yours? Was it really only 14 days until you bottled/kegged or did you secondary??

This sounds good. Can you give some more detailed instructions, such as how much water to start with?

I created this two days ago and it came off to a little weird start. I made mine AG with 7lb American Pale and 1.5lb Crystal 60. My OG was a little lower than yours at 1.078.

6 hours after putting it in the fermenter there was cloud like things floating around in the fermenter and it seemed like something was wrong. After a while the clouds settled to the bottom and it looked like it was about 50/50 cloud like consistency to graff.

The next morning the fermentation finally started and at this point it has a large krausen and small "particles" floating around.

Does this sound anything like your batch?

The first picture is day of putting it in the fermenter (+6 hours) and the second is today (48 hours in)
