I honestly wouldn't know where to begin to tell u how to bottle carb this... I've never tried I usually drink it flat. I was going to experiment with bottling this the around. I was thinking I'd just cold crash about 4 gal of it and use the fifth to experiment with carbing. Mine is about ready to do so as well, so I'll try some this weekend and let u know how things go

This is the easiest way if your going to back sweeten the batch just make sure to fill a plastic soda bottle to check the carbination level or your going to have bottke bombs

Well I finaly started drinking this last night. I forgot to take a gravity reading when I started it so I don't know how strong it is but it is strong. I did all my cider in five gallon batches and this recipe is the third batch I have opened so I have had enough to play around a bit and realize I don't like it sweetened and prefer it flat which makes it easy to bottle up and not worry about carbonation levels. I thought this had almost a Carmel flavor to it and was very tasty. It was by far the best recipe I have tried so far, thanks for sharing!

I notice it has a bit of sweetness to it even though it has been weeks since I have seen a bubble and it is completely flat. No pressure in my bottles this morning either. Perhaps my alcohol content surpassed my yeasts tolerance level of it. I guess it is the carbonation I don't like not sweetness, if I bottle some later on I think I will use les sugar in the recipe then lightly sweeten it and pasturise right away before it can carbonate or maybe just use
