Apple Brown Beery

With this graff recipe, we riffed on an all American treat, Apple Brown Betty, but it is in a glass instead of a cobbler. Amber beer and cider with a hint of cinnamon and brown sugar to round out the mix. Be wary of the alcohol Betty brings to the table though, or you may not be able to get up after a couple. Just what you want to curl up with on a cool autumn night.

    STEP 1: SANITIZING

    Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions to download by visiting our help desk.)


    NOTE: BE SURE TO SANITIZE EVERYTHING THAT WILL COME INTO CONTACT WITH YOUR GRAFF. 

    STEP 2: BREWING

    Brewing graff is the process of combining a sugar source (in this case, a malt brewing extract and cider) with yeast. Once combined, the yeast eats the sugars in the malt, producing alcohol and carbon dioxide (CO2). This process is called fermentation. 

        1. Remove the yeast packet (not needed for this recipe) from under the lid of the can of Brewing Extract, then place the unopened can in hot tap water.
        2. Place the cinnamon stick into the hop sack tying it closed, then trim away excess material.
        3. Using the sanitized measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot. Add in the brown sugar while mixing to avoid clumping and hop sack. Bring mixture to a boil, then remove from heat and take hop sack out and discard.
        4. Open the can of Brewing Extract and all bottles of cider concentrate, pour the contents into the hot mixture. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented graff is called wort.
        5. Fill keg with cold tap water to the #1 mark on the back.
        6. Pour the wort into the keg, and then bring the volume of the keg to the #2 mark by adding more cold water. Stir vigorously with the spoon or whisk.
        7. Sprinkle ONLY the Safale S-04 yeast into keg, then screw on lid. Do not stir.
        8. Put your keg in a location with a consistent temperature between 59° and 68° F (15°-20° C) and out of direct sunlight. After approximately 24 hours, you will be able to see the fermentation process happening by shining a flashlight into the keg. You'll see the yeast in action in the wort. The liquid will be opaque and milky, you will see bubbles rising in the liquid, and there will be bubbles on the surface.
        9. You’ll ferment for 21 days total. Your fermentation will usually reach its peak in 2 to 5 days (this is also known as “high krausen”). You may see a layer of foam on top of the wort, and sediment will accumulate at the bottom of the fermenter. This is totally normal. Complete fermentation will take approximately 2 weeks. After high krausen the foam and activity will subside and your batch will appear to be dormant. Your graff is still fermenting. The yeast is still at work slowly finishing the fermentation process.

    Step 3: BOTTLING AND CARBONATING

    Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions to download by visiting our help desk.)
