Default Still or sparkling

Just bottled my nearly 4 month old apfelwein with hefe yeast, and at the end I realized I forgot the bottling sugar.

Should I open each bottle and recarb, or just let it be still.

I have it both types, but prefer Sparkling. However, the still Cider is more suited to warmer serving temps and can more easily be used in cooking.

Brew what you like. Do this, and you will find your inner brewer.
