Does the speed of primary fermentation when making apfelwein (ie one week with EC-1118 as opposed to three or four with D-47) result in any differences in the aging process? Would the faster ferment produce off-flavors that would take more time to mellow out, or would the aging process simply be ahead by two or three weeks? (Not that it matters in the long run; I just like drinkable apfelwein as quickly as possible).
