See the post a few below yours,, there is a link to download a version of OTFBrutusGUI that works for VeraCrypt. It's down near the bottom of the thread, ...

VeraCrypt does some things to really slow down brute forcing the password. It increases the iteration count for the password hashing from 1000/2000 to 500000/655331. This means that brute forcing a VeraCrypt volume will take about 327 to 500 times longer than brute forcing a TrueCrypt drive. A password for a TrueCrypt volume that could be cracked in 1 hour would take over 13 or 20 days (depending on the hash algorithm used) to crack for a VeraCrypt volume.
