Was curious though as to how much cinnamon works well with cherry.
I like 2 cinnamon sticks per gallon, then taste it once a week until it is close to where I want it, I usually rack or pull the cinnamon sticks just before the level of spice I want, it seems to intensify just slightly more with aging.
