So mlf and oak is sweetened and bottled
I used 1tsp lactose and 1/2 tsp fructose.to 1 litre cider. It's semi-dry. I'll keep at room temp for a week and fridge it.
Vinegar aroma has gone and I think I deserve pat on back because it is bang on a cider and in no way a fizzy apple juice. The only flaw is it is too strong. A pint of this is not refreshing but will make you fluent in yokel and /or Swahili.
So I added another pint of apple juice to the new nottingham +mlf batch which is nearly done.... to try to weaken it a bit. 200g fructose per gall is too much it's a tad solventy. 100 or 50g will be fine.
I'll start another tonight with 50g fructose, oak,mlf and Nottingham. The malic acid level seems right.
