i made 2-5 gallon batches of cider one with 2 pounds of brown sugar added.....the other had a couple of cans of Oregon Raspberries added...........the airlock bubbled like mad for about two weeks than stopped......i tried it via a turkey baster last weekend and it tasted like wine more or less(yeah i know thats not a perfect description but never was much of a wine drinker, my normal drink is vodka sours) anyways the buckets smelled like yeast when opened but the cider tasted fine.....quite good for being warm actually, not dry at all which is great but defiantly is no longer apple juice.........ive let it set a week and still no bubbles...........the temp in the room is 72 and i used an ale yeast recommended by my it likely actually done?

Probably done, since you didn't boost the OG too much.
