Ok...just an update...I've changed the recipe just a bit from the O.P.
3 pounds of Orange blossom honey
2 blood oranges squeezed, and zested
1 stick cinnamon
1 vanilla bean
2 tsp mulling spices steeped in 2 cups hot water for 20 minutes
I steeped the mulling spices in a fine mesh grain bag..then poured that into a 1 gallon carboy. added the juice from the two squeezed blood oranges and zest from one of the blood oranges. Poured the 3 pounds of honey in and shook the carboy until the honey was well dissolved into the water. I put in my cinnamon stick, vanilla bean and topped up with cold water. rehydrated D47 as per packet instructions (104F for 15 minutes)..then inoculated the must..swirled a few seconds, and then put on the airlock.
S.G. 1.130......temp 73F
I was surprised that it really has already lost all of the pinkish red color the oranges put in..now it's a golden color. it is bubbling away like mad already.
