I found it takes about 6 to 8 weeks for my pumkins. I have 10g in fermentors now and I cut alot of spices on this one hoping to age quicker.

You probably used way too many cloves, how many exactly?
I know the delicate flavors of ciders get overwhelmed with just 3 cloves in 5 gallons.

Everyone seems to think just because their small they need to be pitching in handfuls of cloves, which seems to be the number one ruiner of ciders.

Depending on how overboard you went, it may or may not age out...
