Got my 6 gallon batch going. Only had enough dextrose to get it to 1.60. Do you think that should be ok or should I add some brown sugar or more dextrose tomorrow? Let me know your thoughts.

My batch is bubbling away! I hope only sweetening to 1.6 will still yield a good cider, just around 5% or so I'm guessing.

Bottled version 1.0 last night. I did let it ferment for almost a month instead of the recommended 7-10 days and didn't use as much sugar when I made it as I ran out. It tasted pretty good as it was. I then added only 4 tsp's of malic acid instead of 6 to start with. When I then tasted it with the malic acid, it had a slightly tart, Sour Patch Kid tang to it. My first time using Malic acid so I'm not sure what to expect.
I'm hoping it will meld/mellow out in the bottle. Will bottle pasteurize one carbonated and update everyone. Attached are pics of my readings pre and post malic acid and a pic of the finished product.
