Thanks, I tasted the dry lactose after my post and noticed the same thing.
I used 1/8 LB in 2.5 gallons. If it doesn't do much I'm not worried. I only wanted add a very little sweetness, almost just body.
It's an experiment to me but my family loves cider and like it dry. I just keep making apfelwine by mistake.
This one is close but just a tiny bit too dry I think.
