Success!!!! It's dry with a hint of sweet from the splenda, crisp when cold and the apples really come out as it warms. It has a sour taste. I don't know if it's an infection my friend that likes sour's isn't sure but he said get it all cold just in case.

I couldn't hold out any longer I cooled a bottle for a few hours tonight and cracked it open to a perfect amount of carbonation.

Just a day short of 2 weeks since it was bottled.

I'm going to take a bottle to a friend that teaches a judging class and get his opinion and ideas if it does have a sour infection this time it added to the flavor and is quite enjoyable. I will now ferment right in a Carboy skip the bucket and pickup an auto siphon. If I picked up a bug it was all my siphoning problems.

The first image is roughly 3 hours after adding dry yeast.

The second is 24 hours in. Lots of air lock activity my son giggles every time it bubbles.

I read in another thread cote des blancs leaves a buttery after taste, bummer if it does I'll still drink it though.
