Default Two 3-gal batches, any recipe ideas?

I've got 5gal of apfelwein that's about ready to bottle, so I want to branch out and try some other stuff. I love dry English ciders like Scrumpy Jack--how different would a recipe like this be from Edwort's recipe? I've heard some people don't like the liquid cider yeasts; could I use some Safale S-04? I'm shooting for 6% ABV or less, so more of a traditional session cider.

For the second 3 gallons, I think I'm going to just add a few ounces of lactose to sweeten it up and ferment with the Montrachet yeast. Again, I'd like to avoid going over 6% ABV. The apple juice is Mott's, 100% juice and no added sugar. Anyone use this brand before and know about how much it ferments?

Did you make the Apfelwein with lactose?

How much lactose did you wind up using and how did it turn out?
