Regarding the rough taste, it might be caused by the nutrient. If you're planning to bottle then let it ferment down to 1.002 or less. Sometimes, I cold crash at 1.020 by putting it in PET bottles and straight into the fridge. It drops clear in a day or two and tastes great (still a bit sweet).
Well I wanted to get it to a secondary to free up my big one for a trial batch of mead. I plan on back sweetening to around 1.020 and bottle pasteurizing. Don't really have the ability to cold crash at the moment (winter I will though ha). Never thought yeast nutrient could negatively affect flavor considering you really don't add some big ammount
