Ok, just tasted my second sample of the cider, it's pretty much crystal clear. I've got about 1.5L leftover that I'm tasting out of and fine tuning flavors. I've 1/4tsp of Acid Blend and that didn't do much, so I added another 1/2 to see if that pushes it too far then I'll calc out for my 3 gal. I still plan on carbing with apple juice concentrate, how much apple flavor does it add? Right now I would say it is not a very crisp cider, and maybe a little light on apple, but I'm not sure what will happen after I carb or if that will bring out or change any flavors. Does anybody make a Granny Smith apple juice concentrate? That might be different. FG is around 1.002 and I was hoping for a little sweeter. I'd add lactose, but I have no idea how much for 3 gal. 1/4 cup?
