So i brewed a batch as follows 1 pound caramel 10L, 1/2 pound chocolate malt 325-375lL, 4 1/2 gallons apple juice, 3 cans concentrate And used a vial of heffenweisen Yeast. I was wondering if anybody has made anything like this before and could tell me what to expect And what tempature to ferment at.

I have never made a cider with grain. What kind of yeast character are you looking for, if you want a banana character ferment warmer, if you want a cleaner yeast character ferment on the cooler side.

I used the grains to give it a darker amber color and alittle bit of a maltier taste im shootin for a Wood Chuck Cider type drink.
