Your still way to early to bottle, I would guess between 10 and 12 weeks before it's ready. From the batches I've make that's the norm, but that's also with dry wine yeast. May be able to bottle...

It's all in what you like. I like it still with no carbonation and usually draw off a gallon or so at a time straight from a carboy.

Just a thought, but whenever I use cinnamon, honey, or dark brown sugar the batch tastes like crap. In my opinion, simple is better. Apple juice, sugar, and yeast.

Forgot to mention, I don't use any tablets. At around 3 months when it's clear and no more activity is when I draw off 1/2 gallon or sometimes a gallon at a time to drink. I never have messed...
