So the grainy sugar is cane sugar and the fine stuff in the kits for bottling is corn? Can you buy corn sugar from the the grocery? They don't seem to be differentiated if so. How do I tell the difference

How long can this stay in the primary and will it improve over 6 months or so in the primary or would this be too long?

No, what you see in that picture is Table Sugar, Cane sugar is the raw product. Corn sugar is a rare find at a grocery store but becoming increasingly popular. However, table sugar is fermentable.

In regards to the AJ the ingredients you need to watch out for are POTASSIUM SORBATE & SODIUM BENZOATE. They are preservatives and are added to prevent yeast from growing.

I leave mine in the carboy until I can see through it and then I bottle it up and carb it a little with 5 oz of priming sugar to 1.5 cups of water.

Still haven't tried to make it sweater with a non fermentable sugar, but have been getting lots of requests for that.

As for the leaving it to the 8 to 16 month mark, they aren't kidding. I have some that are near the 18 month mark and people love it. I usually make two batches at a time just so I can have some well aged apfelwein on hand.

I just got back from Frankfurt and drank Apfelwein (or Ebbelwoi as the Frankfurters call it). It is served in a grey stoneware pitcher and then poured into a .5l glass. The wein is not carbonated, but rather the glass is topped off with about a 1/4 inch of sparkling water. Very refreshing on a hot summer day in the shade of a weingarten. It goes down easy and sneaks up fast!
Prost!

Since there is no hops in this, can you bottle in clear bottles (still keeping them out of the light) I have some Newcastle bottles that I was going to return.
