Of course, just use a whole pack of yeast anyway though. I have done 3 gallons of this a couple times

OK so tomorrow is day 14 in the primary. I was planning on bottling tomorrow, but the fermentation is still fairly active. This is my first cider so pardon any stupid questions, but do I want to wait for activity to stop and get steady gravity readings before bottling as I would with an ale?

Gravity is sitting at 1.008 at 73.9 Farenheit. OG was around 1.061 at close to the same temperature (I didn't take the temp). It is still bubbling once a second or so, so I am guessing this thing has a few more days to sit. The sample I drew was actually slightly carbonated and tasted along the lines of a slightly dry flat champagne with a sweet apple aftertaste... but good quite clear and very good

So I just bottled this up yesterday it's my first try. However, the cinnamon didn't mix well and it looks terrible with huge stringy floaters. What did I do wrong, any ideas? It does taste delicious. But obviously it's not mixing well so next time ill use the liquid cinnamon.
