Woodchuck fall cider, sort of
 
So I am trying to replicate Woodchuck's fall cider flavor profile for my GF which Wikipedia describes as having cinnamon and nutmeg in it.

My recipe is EdWort's recipe and we are planning on back sweetening to taste with lactose. It's a 5 gallon batch.

However, I am unsure how much cinnamon and nutmeg to add. How cinnamony would 2 sticks of cinnamon make 5 gallons? And how much nutmeg should I start with to add a slight nutmeg taste?

Thanks for your help. :mug:

In a 5 gallon batch, I'd say one or two 4" sticks of cinnamon would be good, the longer you leave spices in, the more flavour they impart. As far as the nutmeg goes, try half of 1 whole nutmeg, just cut it in half. You might make a sort of teabag, or even use a tea ball sort of thing to make the retieval of your spices easy. Regards, GF.
