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
