I believe you carbonate it just like you would a batch of beer, i know its less with a keg than if your bottling but im not sure by how much.

Only got bottles here

Mine is 3 weeks today, fermentation is finally slowing, I cheated though and took a sample this past week, SG was about 1.002 and it tasted like apple champagne, yummy.

Interesting, i thought fermentation had stopped completely on my apfelwein, and it might have. I kept it at 70*F. Today starts the 4th week, well we started some experimental Hard Lemonade and set it beside the apfelwein. I leave and come back to check on the Lemonade and see the apfelwein bubble. I thought it completely stopped, and it either got stuck and started again when the temp rose a little (to warm up the lemonade), or it was always bubbling just at about 1 bubble every 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Any thoughts on this Ed? Was it always fermenting and I just didn't notice? Truth be told after it started clearing I quit paying attention to the airlock.

3/4 cup of corn sugar for 5 gallons should do it.
