I did a search for this because I just added cinnamon to my first cider/mead batch. I had a half gallon extra experimental fermenter that I added some cinnamon and bottled without priming. I did that sunday 2/24 and it got a light cinnamon flavor which i liked but its missing something (carbonation).
Today I brewed some cinnamon in a coffee cup and boiled it with a little honey to "prime" in my fermenter before bottling it this weekend, I may add a touch of vanilla when I do. I liked having the cinnamon over not having it but I haven't let the brew sit and would like to have it carb'd.
5 gallons 100% apple juice
4 lbs wildflower honey

1 tbsp of cinnamon brewed in keurig to make 1 cup of water and boil with 1 cup of honey. I'll let yall know this weekend when I bottle and after a week of bottle aging.
Do yall do wine bottles or beer? I plan on having medium carbonation.
