Do it. In my experience the waiting seems to be on the bottled end. I'm drinking my last sparkling apple cider that seems like a hooch recipe looking back as my first attempt at anything brewing. This bottle is now over 13 months old and was the best tasting of the batch. Its definately a dry cider, with 3 gallons of cider and 2 lbs of plain table sugar for fermentables. It also has some grape tannin powder (3/4 teaspoon) in it for astringency.
