I used Lalvin D47 yeast and left this in primary for about 21 days. It fermented all the way down to 0.996 and gave me a whopping abv of 14.5%. The flavor was good but I decided to put in secondary for another 2 to 3 weeks before bottling so some of the alcohols can mellow out.

I didn't write it down for some reason. I think it was 1.064 with just the juice and sugar, plus the 5# of honey.

1.064 was what I got on my Ed Worts Apfelwein which has the same sugar additions.

The longer it sits the better it gets!!!
Do you leave this as still cider after bottling or do you add sugar to make it sparkling?

After one month it's still a bright cloudy orange color. I'm assuming it will eventually after racking and letting it rest a while. Is this correct? Did anyone add potasium sorbate?
