Tasted mine last night. Was pretty good. (I went off recipe a bit and only added 10 lbs of cane sugar). You can follow the progress here

Mine is cleared about 3/4 of the way down the carboy. There was a lot of gas when I degassed it.

Sorry for the late reply, been on vacation, I used a vacuum pump to degass it. Now that I have returned it is now clear all the way to the bottom

This is interesting, if it turns out okay I might start making one (with a bit less sugar) for this coming Christmas.

I have now tried it again, it is definitely better than before the degassing. I am not sure what to say because I have no hard cider or apfelwein drinking experience. It is really clear though, I can easily read a newspaper looking through it. I am chilling some in the fridge now to see how it is cold. It has a slight apple after taste. I am considering back sweetening it.
