So I made 4 gallons of cider, 2 of the gallons used brown sugar and the other two used white sugar. The brown sugar batch is delicious, while the other is not very pleasurable. For the sub par batch I would like to experiment with flavoring additives. I intend to throw a few cinnamon sticks in, half a cup of molasses, and some smoked hickory chips in an let it age for a while. Will this help or am i wasting my time? Btw this is my first cider experience.
