comment Fermentation Done After 2 Days?
A bubbling airlock certainly indicates that fermentation has occurred, but does not necessarily indicate that fermentation is still occurring.

comment Fermentation Done After 2 Days?
The bubbles in the airlock could just be CO2 coming out of solution. It may not be a sign of active fermentation.

comment When will fermentation end? ( wine )
It'll reach equilibrium based on temperature and pressure, if I remember by grade 10 chemistry. Since the CO2 is in equilibrium, the wine won't be fizzy. My experiences is that wines bulk aged for 12 months do not suffer from unwanted CO2.

De-gassing is not a necessary step in winemaking. The alternative is to wait some number of months for the wine to lose its CO2 naturally.

comment What sugar for a sparkling iced tea?
@Anigel, To produce 3 volumes of CO2, the yeast will make 0.4% alcohol by volume. You can call that alcoholic if you want to be technical, but it's so low as to be unnoticeable.

Pretty sure the question is in regards to an extract kit. Enzymes won't be involved.

comment Restarting fermentation after it has stopped?
Wild yeast is always a bit difficult to predict, but you should be OK adding the sugar now. To ensure good mixing, I'd recommend boiling the sugar with enough water to make a syrup, and cooling before adding to the cider. Mix gently but thoroughly with a sanitized spoon.

comment Can I use my CO2 regulator as a inside keg pressure checker?
I've never had any luck force carbonating. I just set the regulator for the target pressure, and wait a week. Good luck :)
