Default Apfelwein time to clear?

I started five gallon in December and racked when fermentation stopped @ about 6 weeks. At this point in May it is cleared pretty well and only the bottom third of the carboy is hazy. How long should I expect before its completely clear to the bottom and bottle ready? I have this in a cool dark basement at about 65 deg.

Shouldn't take too long. Try racking it to a different carboy, top it up and leave it. Should help it along.

Yea. Surprised it hasn't cleared yet already though, to be honest. Try dumping it and starting over.

Just kidding. Yea rack it again and in a month it should be crystal clear.
