I will keg it tonight or tomorrow, and sweeten/spice it. I am rushing it a tad, but want to serve it on Thanksgiving. Yay for CO2!!!
The thing I noticed with this is that if it isn't clear, no one really notices since apple juice (the natural cider as the store calls it) is typically cloudy so people sometimes expect it. If you went to 1.004 I bet 2 cans will be enough as it seems each can is about .006, though I have not calculated it.
I've also added a can of apple cranberry to it for one batch. Added just a little cranberry flavor and gave it is nice color. Though the cranberry does not add the same perceived sweetness so I still needed the standard concentrate to bring it up to my liking.
Oh, and this stuff is great even if you over carb it slightly. So if you throw it in the fridge on high co2 before thanksgiving and forget about it, you will probably still be fine!
