if the yeast is done there should be no sparkling or carbonation at all . The bottles I have from April of 08 are completely flat no fizz at all.

After about 5 weeks my first batch of Apfelwein was crystal clear and came in at 1.001. I drank the sample jar and WOW! This stuff is gonna be great!

It is in the Keg and will debut at our National Homebrew Day Bacon and Beer Fest next month.

Okay quick question about this stuff. I made a 2.5 gallon batch, let it ferment down to 1.002 (about 4 weeks) then bottled, half of them are carbed, the other half arent. My question is this, the carbed ones have been bottled now for 3 weeks and i popped one open last night, and omg it was horrible. It tasted like watered down, sour club soda. Really no flavor at all other than sour. Any thoughts on this?

When it's young, that description is not too far off. It does get better with age.... non carbed begins to taste like a good white wine and carbed leans toward a hard cider kind of thing. Not too far off of a strongbow. YMMV
