I currently have 3 empty carboys, so that won't be an issue. I really need to get my keezer finished up, and get some stuff brewed up to keg!

Don't you worry adding that much table sugar will make it taste cidery?

Started mine 16 November and it is still bubbling away rapidly. I'm hoping to move to secondary next weekend with some clearing agent then bottle after 48 hours. Planning on giving some away as christmas gifts so hopefully it turns out well. Even if it doesn't, I wont be the one drinking it!!!

You might want to wait a little longer in primary.
There is a LOT of sugar in this recipe and fermentation can go on for some time after the airlock slows/stops.
You don't want to make bottle bombs.
(I keg personally and fill any bottles from tap well after fermentation is stopped)

OK. I'll start checking FG next weekend and see where it goes. I have a Peach Honey cider I can bottle if this is not done in time. I was also worried this might be kind of hot since it would be young. Have you had any problems with that or is it usually drinkable while young?

It can be pretty hot/rocket fuely when it's young.
I now personally let everything i make sit for no less than a month in primary.
Secondary for this cider depends on if you add cinnamon or coco-nibs/vanilla beans.
If adding those items i'd let it sit in secondary for 3-4 weeks.
If not adding items then i only let it go long enough to clear the cider.
This usually is a very short time as i use KC Super-Kleer (great stuff)
However i will often increase primary for 3 weeks often if doing that.(that's on top of the 4 weeks)
(how close to empty my kegs are influences this heavily)
Your best option is to drink a bottle of it just before your shipping date.
If it tastes `ready` then you are good to ship.
I personally think this cider improves with age but at the same time i've not had the patience to let anything age beyond 4 months (from yeast pitching to crying over how my keg of it is now empty)
Hope this helps.
-Paps

I'm like you Paps. I had mine in primary for a month and then in secondary for about 3 months and that was without any cinnamon or anything added. I've had several people try it and they like it but to me I say its still about 60/40 to the alcohol side of the taste even sitting that long.

I tried to reply a bit ago, hopefully I don't double post. Anyways, GD2, what an awesome label!

New to corny kegging, but after 60 days in primary and secondary, will this carb up sitting in a corny at room temp for a few weeks? I run one regulator, so I can't force carb. Should I add a bit more sugar/aj concentrate at kegging?

Just plug your keg in at serving pressure and let it sit for a week before drinking it.
(that's let it sit still plugged into your co2 tank)
No need to add more sugar or apple juice concentrate.
Even at serving pressure its `still` a type of force carbing.
Just not the blast it at 30-psi and drink in a day.
I carb at 30-psi but i personally run a nitro-beergas tank.
Which is a different animal than straight co2.
Picture guinness like pours on a hard cider.
