Mix Honey with 4.5 Gallons Apple Cider. Heat .5 gallon of cider on stove and mix corn and brown sugar with Nutmeg until blended. Put all mixtures into fermenter, shake well add cinnamon sticks and yeast.

The longer it sits the better it gets!!!
I have no choice! I must make this! It will be perfect for the fall and winter.

I used pectin enzyme during fermentation and got a really clear, clean cider. Then I used potassium sorbate a day before bottling to keep everything still.

I left mine in primary for three weeks, then secondary for another three weeks before bottling. If you didn't add any pectin enzyme at the beginning of primary, it will probably stay a little cloudy.

I had mine in primary for three weeks, secondary for three weeks. Then I added potassium sorbate, let it sit for 36 hours. After that I racked into a bottling bucket with 1 can apple juice concentrate per gallon of cider. I had a little left over after bottling, and it tasted amazing! Then after letting it sit three weeks, it tastes even better. So, I would say it tastes great in six weeks from pitching the yeast.

Yea It would be fine, the cinnamon might be on the spicy side. I racked mine over cause I wanted to get the cider of the sticks and clear it up a little bit.
