so i just still - bottled my spiced test batch of edworts recipe but using unfiltered apple juice. the spice notes in my nose were actually a lot higher than i thought they would be for how little nutmeg and like 1/4 of a ciniman stick i put into it.
when i tasted it it seemed quite sour like a granny smith apple. funny thing is though... i forgot to taste the juice to see what it tasted like before i made the test batch
so i have no idea if it was sour to begin with or not. i guess i will let it sit in the fridge to age for a week and try one and see how she goes.
ps... it was fermented for about 5.5 weeks... then moved to secondary with a campden tablet and sorbate for about a week... then bottled.
