You don't need much extra space if you are using the Red Star yeast. I have two carboys going full force right now and there is nothing going on up top. It just gets cloudy.

Nottingham forms a thick head, but the 1.5-2 in is plenty there also

Ed kegs after three months and allows them to age in the keg.
Sure, like I said "may want to", not had to.

For the record Apfelwein is the only wine I will ever keep on the lees longer than 3 months.

I have a batch still in primary since 11 months (less a day). Should probably bottle it soon... I even bought champagne bottles for it several weeks ago.

Well I mad 5 gallons of original recipe a few weeks ago and I'm taking edworts advice and starting another one today. I bought 4 gallons of apple and 1 of cranberry raspberry and this time I might use 3 lbs of dextrose. What do you guys think? Anyone done a combo like this? I tried a search and couldn't come up with anything. Also I will be using montrachet yeast again.

No need for 3lbs of dexatrose, thestuff is potent enough
