So here was my original recipe :
5 gallons apple juice (hytop from winco -- cost $3/gallon)
4 lbs Fructose ($1.75/lb)
1oz Centennial (9.5 alpha) 60 minutes
1oz Centennial (9.5 alpha) end of boil
1 packet Montrachet Yeast
Now this fermented with vigor and insanity, had some great Rhino fart smells to it. Brewed it a month ago.
Racked it off last week into a keg and force carbonated it.
Tasted it today, and it was horribly dry and had a flavor that is hard to describe.
I forgot about the pectin thing, so it is not very clear, but my question is
Was it the fructose addition? What can I do to improve the flavor?
