I know there are mentions of it in the original thread if you want to wade through the hundreds of pages. I plan on kegging mine but bottle conditioning works just as well apparently.
It may take a real man to brew a big beer, but it takes a big man to brew a real beer.

All I do is carb mine, but I mostly just give it away too. My mom loves the stuff and so do my aunts. I stick it in a 1 gallon cube and take some to them on the weekends. they mix it with cranberry juice.
I think it tastes great anyway you drink it but I like the sprazzle a little more.

Bottle conditioned 1st batch of apfelwien. It's going fast. I used 1/2 # corn sugar to carb. It's taking a long time to get carbed. Opened one tonight and its nearly perfectly carbed. It definately adds something positive vs. still.

Come on, people. Even if you don't want to read the whole thread, you could at least read the *first post*.

If you want to bottle and carbonate, ¾ cup of corn sugar will work fine. Use as you would carbonate a batch of beer.
