As for letting it sit for longer...
"Six months and it hits its stride. Eight months and it'll blow your mind".
Says some dude!

I wrapped it up in foil and towel in hope to keep it warmer.

Then bottle and leave for another 2 mths. tasteing along the way of course;)
The cider packs say - 2 weeks to ferment, then 5 weeks in bottle. (but I have doubled everything, and the cider packs together make 34 LTRS I made 30 with them... so I hope its not too sweet & would rather leave it longer to take out the sugars ?. Is that how it works ?

Can I open the carboy and place more sugar in a week or two ? Or will this be enough ?? :
13 grms of yeast
1KG Dextrose sugar
500 grm demarara sugar
100 grms castor

You added some apple juice too so there should be plenty!
Edit: Yeah you have 1975 grms of "sweet stuff" and then your juice, how much juice did ya put in there because there is around 10grms natural sugar per 100ml i think.
