Will it benefit from me waiting longer than 4 weeks?

I don't know... I made a one gallon batch with two cloves and it's actually very tasty. I did also put in a little more than the proportional amount of sugar so there may be some extra sweetness offsetting the cloves. Since I put two one gallon I think the eight in five gallons might be ok.

I also kept the fermentation to a tight six weeks. I worry (maybe unnecessarily) that leaving any extra organic matter in there too long will create off-flavors.

Glad I checked this thread. My batch has been in the fermenter for a month as of today. Still have held off taking a sample, and I guess I'll let it sit for at least another month. Just wanna have it ready for the holidays.

Can I bottle/cork this? Also, I read that you can carbonate this, where do I find that information?

Thanks!

Having trouble finding an answer. Read the first 50 pages or so and tried a search. I want to bottle and carb with a can of apple concentrate. Will this work? I followed the recipe but used 2lbs brown sugar instead. I don't want bottle bombs but am not sure how concentrate would work. Thanks!

My god this site is evil. Going through a brewing course and just got into brewing and came over here to share a link when I found this thread. I have not had this stuff since I was stationed in Germany 92-94 and hit the Apfelwein Fest in Trier GE. Street vendor near the Roman Aqueduct gave us a free full glass which we quickly drank and reached into our pockets to take a few bottles back with us to Strassberg Kassrne. I remember waking up the next morning feeling fine but thirsty. Drank a couple glasses of water and started getting a buzz again. Someone told me the reason was because of all the sediment in the wine was still in our stomach and still had alcohol in it. Dunno, but I remember being pretty messed up for a couple days from that stuff. Man I miss that. Guess I'm going to have to make a batch of this too.

Search the thread for bottling posts using terms like carbonate or prime, etc. Here are a couple thread links that talk about it:

Thanks!
One more tidbit, if you plan to carbonate, do not use wine bottles/corks. Use beer bottles/crowns, flip-top bottles, or champange/corks. Use a bottling environment that will handle the contents being under pressure.
