Nah. Typically barrel aging and IPA don't mix. IPAs are all about fresh hop aroma, flavor, and bitterness. If you age it in barrels your going to lose a lot of IBUs and your aroma will be gone. ...

Tannin probably between 1/8 and 1/4 tsp per 5 gallon batch. I wouldn't go much more than that. Malic acid depends on how acidic the apples are you're using, as well as when they were picked. ...

Yes your results sound spot on if all you did was ferment cider. It will really dry out and finish rather thin without some form of back sweetening. I also like to add a bit of tannin and malic...
