Default Apfelwein Yeast Question

So I made a batch of Ed Wort's with Cotes Des Blancs because I'm impatient and the HBS was out of Montrachet.

(1) Should I add a yeast nutrient? I am on day 7 and it is still bubbling away.

(2) Does this bottle condition well? Will it carb okay with 3/4 cup dextrose?


I know there have been several posts with people experimenting, but I haven't seen a reasonably conclusive answer.

So I added yeast nutrient and krausen went everywhere before I could get the airlock back on. This was only 1 tsp (out of 2.5-5 recommended). Hopefully the air didn't do anything negative to the apfelwein.

I guess I'll see about bottle conditioning.
