The cider is bright, quite tart, and mildly funky. Not over the top at all, a pleasant moderate

I will be brewing up a batch this weekend. Makes sense to add the acid malt after 45 minutes
into the mash but do you mash longer to ensure adequate conversion time for the acid malt?
Maybe a 75 or 90...

our knowledge of "what brett does" is centered on brux (and clausinii). DD also contains
