Thats not even close to as good as it gets unless you meant it aged for over a year.

I've got a batch of this ready to bottle and I'm debating on using swing tops. I'm going to bottle it still and am wondering how well the swing tops will keep a seal for aging. The plan is to bottle age another 6 months. Any help is much appreciated!

As long as the seals are good you should be ok.

I wish I had found this thread before starting my Cider. That said the recipe I used is almost identical. Looking forward to tasting!

Make another! It takes no time and you'll want it anyway.

I need to find space. My wife has been very supportive of my brewing efforts so I dont want that to change. She has lost a bit of space in our laundry area to my primaries.

Happy wife happy life. Ill do it once my Lager is done brewing in a few days.

I have a 5 gal batch that I started on 4/20/13. Im wanting to bottle it in grolsch bottles while adding sugar to carb it. How long should it stay in the primary before bottling?

4-5 weeks, but the longer it sits the more lees it will drop and less likely will carb.

There have been plenty of people who leave the apfelwein for months and can still naturally carb it- it just takes a little longer.

Yeah it defiantly does, I carb up a batch that I let sit for 4 months and it took over a month to carb up enough to be worth it.
