I think I'll give it another try and increase the amount of cinnamon, sub 1 lb of dextrose for brown sugar, add a bit of honey to the mix and use some washed wyeast 1272 that I have on hand.
When you were bottling was any of the syrup left at the bottom? My first time doing this I had the same issue but noticed a lot of the syrup hadnt mixed in. So my 2nd time I slowly stirred the mixture in the bottling bucket the whole time I was bottling

I didn't notice if so, so I tend to think not but anything is possible. I'll keep a better eye on it next time.

I just kegged this and the first glass had some syrup in it so i am gonna leave it warm and shake it occasionally to mix. I should have left it warm and mixed it in, i dont think there would have been any problem.

Judge, I didn't add extra dextrose but I did put an extra fajc at the begining, and ended up around 9% final ABV...

I have completed this recipe and added the 5 camden tablets to stop fermentation and bottle as still cider. It's been 15 days in the bottle and my 1st popped top is carbonated?

Should I be worried about bottles exploding or is the carbonation after bottling normal?

Sorry to hijack, but I make my cider from a local mills' cider. If you're ever in northeast PA, shoot me a pm. They're only open in the summer through thanksgiving though.

Camden alone won't kill the yeast. You need sorbate also. If possible put them all in the fridge.

What is fajc? And once I hit my target fg I figured I'd have the same around 8.5-9%.

Ah, I see now. I didn't think to try that just cause most the flavor would be lost do to fermenting. How did it turn out flavor wise?
