Good, I think it's clearing up now and there is a lot more sediment on the bottom.

I just had a taste and holy ****, there is no sugar whatsoever, it's gone dry and it tastes like white wine, not cider.

That's okay I guess.

Depending on your yeast strain and how much additional sugar you added...they can end up tasting more like wine than cider. A nice long bulk age will bring the apple flavor back around.

You just let it run dry. Perfectly normal. Your yeast ate all of the natural sugars, and to prevent this dry taste, just add sugar to sweeten to your preference and pasteurize it.
