ok... I read a bunch, but still have to ask. Mine is in the carboy for over 2 months now at 75* constantly the entire time. It tastes like weak dry sour apple something... does it need more time or is there something I need to do to make it more like something my wife might like? I thought about adding cinnamon sticks/allspice/honey to the secondary because she loves apple pie.
thanks.

Check out the caramel apple hard cider thread for possible ideas. I've done apfelwein fermented with a cinnamon stick or 2 in it several times, but find that it gives me wicked heartburn so I stay away from it now. I'd assume adding honey would just ferment out without giving it much flavor, but I could be wrong...

As much as I would like to read through 1288 posts, is the OP still the most accurate recipe?
