Well, you shouldn't worry, mostly because you'd be violating RDWHAHB protocol. But yeah, with anything you're bulk aging, you want to minimize headspace. If you don't have a carboy small enough, you can boil some glass marbles (sanitize them) to help take up some of that excess room without imparting any off flavors to your apfelwein.

Very true llama! I have it in 6gal carboys, I will switch it to the better bottles. Thanks!
