Tried a bottle last night and although it wasn't as fizzy as I'd like, I did enjoy the taste! 

Try with a champagne yeast it will do better at secondary fermentation.  Leave the bottles somewhere warm for a few days it should help.

Any tips on shortest time to leave to mature before consuming for best flavour?

I think mine peaked around 6 weeks after I opened the first, probably 8 weeks in total.

I must do something with mine - it's still in the DJ's !  :ohmy:

Thanks for the information Lardman!  Will do and I'll pick up some champagne yeast before I start a 5gal batch later in the year.  Marked 6 weeks on my calendar, can't wait!

When you leave it in the DJ for a long time, do you have to pitch more yeast for the 2nd fermentation or will it still be alive?

I'm impressed with how cheap this recipe was!  Should work out far cheaper than buying 5gals of juice for turbo cider.
