I racked my cider from primary to secondary after 3 weeks when it finished fermenting. at that point It was pretty dry, and had a little bit of a fruity taste but I wouldn't really consider it drinkable. I added sugar to a sample size and it still wasn't very good, so I put the sample in the fridge. I tasted it daily and it was still not great after a day or 2, but last night made about a week in the fridge and it tastes a lot better. Is that just because a lot of the yeast dropped out (Like cold crashing), or were there some additional changes from being in the fridge?
Last night I racked from the secondary onto some apple juice concentrate with campden tabs and potassium sorbate. I tasted the mixture and it still isn't great. Will the batch of cider get to tasting as good as the sample in the fridge, it just needs more time to clear? I figure it will probably take what, maybe a close to a month to taste as good as the sample in the fridge and clear up so I can bottle it?
