Default ground cinamon in apfelwein?

What do you guys think? Could it be good? It has been about a week was thinking about adding it to the carboy for flavoring? Maybe a tad bit of nutmeg? thoughts? suggestions?!

ground spices, at least finely ground into a powder, never played well in my meads. i'd buy whole cinnamon stick and coarse grind/chop it.

Ground cinnamon won't dissolve in your cider, so you'd end up with the ground particles of cinnamon in it, which may settle to the bottom, but could easily be resuspended when you rack it off.

Yeah, let a cinnamon stick steep in it, don't use ground.

Yeah, I put some ground cinnamon into my 1 gallon jug last night. I know it won't totally settle out, but hopefully after a few months (and with some careful racking) I can minimize it. I didn't have any sticks, but had just bought a fresh bottle of ground last week.

I'm not worried about it, but if it was for public consumption I think I would be more careful and use sticks next time.

My first batch of Apfelwein I added ground cinnamon into the "boil", and I also threw 2 cinnamon sticks into the carboy.

After all that, I can't even taste the cinnamon.

When I first heard of apfelwein, I figured that cinnamon in it would be just splended.

Having just downed three glasses more on an empty stomach (Lost my apfelwein virginity yesterday!) I'm not exactly sure that cinnamon would go well with the flavour if this.

I like the tartness of apfelwein, there's very little sweetness and that's what I've always thought made cinnamon good with... apples.

There you go. No need to mess up a simple drink. Thanks for paying attention to the three glass rule.
