Default Bottling Apfelwein?

Hi, the Apfelwein that I made is now ready to leave my carboy. I guess I'll bottle it in beer bottles, but should I prime it? I have some Dextrose to use.

I would like to get it out of the carboy and accessible for us to enjoy.

Thanks!

Jennifer

Yes, prime with 3/4 cup of dextrose. I'm on my 3rd batch of Apfelwein and it works wonderfully.

Thanks ohiobrewtus, armed with the information you've just divulged I'm going to bottle the stuff this Saturday. This is truly an outstanding hobby!
