Yeah, maybe pectinase... I don't know, but I'm sure there's a wine maker on here who does. Otherwise, just let it in. Believe it or not, the bottles I've made with it came out pretty clear in the glass. You just have to handle the bottles a little more carefully before pouring so the pectin doesn't swirl up from the bottom, pour a little more carefully, and let a little more in the bottle than you would with homebrewed beer.

I bottle apfelwein in whatever I've got a round.

Just keep note of what can hold pressure and what can't. Don't try and carb a milk jug or something stupid like that.

Some people like it flat, some like it carbed, I try to go 50/50.

As far as an appropriate serving size... 8oz coke bottles? I find that anything larger than that I end up overdoing it :O .

I just got done bottling some apfelwein into a flip top bottle that i got at the local "health food" store. It had some sparkling lemonade in it, good lemonade and a awesome bottle for apfelwein, basically the same size as a wine bottle but clear and flip top.

The flip top Sangria bottles from Whole Foods are perfect for this application. Check it out.
