Is it possible to add any other juices whilst it is fermenting?
I only have one carboy so I can't make a secondary to do this =[.

I started another batch last week. I was also wondering about adding other juice after fermentation starts, I was thinking that I'd like to rack some into a gallon jug and add some Pom or Cran juice to the already fermenting apple juice.

I wanna experiment with some apfelwein by adding some spices in. Should I put them in during fermentation or during bottling? And since apfelwein is pretty strong, should I go a little above what is recommended for each spice (in fear of it killing the flavors) or should the usual measurements be okay?

I am not experienced with adding spices to anything, but my guess would be that you should add them at bottling time, since most spices have alcohol-soluble flavors that wouldn't come out otherwise; they'd probably sink to the bottom and get thrown out. Maybe someone else will know better, though.

Just do like a glogg and add at drinking time.
