I did a 1.5 gallons of this. The only changes I made were using granulated table sugar instead of corn sugar and only 1 cinnamon stick. I had an OG of 1.100, used safale us-05, and after 3 weeks it stabilized at 1.027. Really sweet right now, but hopefully it will mellow and blend a bit while bulk aging before bottling. Otherwise the taste is INCREDIBLE.

This thing is fermenting strong and smells great.
Racked tonight and took a small sample. I think the ec-1118 was just too aggressive. I don't taste honey, cinnamon or clove. In fact, it hardly even tastes like apple juice. I may stabilize and backsweeten with a mixture of apple juice concentrate and honey and just let it bulk age to see if the flavors change.

I did a batch of this as well with EC-1118 and I'm hoping time will mellow it out. It is as you describe but I'm sure it will mellow out and the other flavours will come up as it ages. I'll give it a try around the 6 month mark and see what's up.

I made a batch in March and just recently transferred to wine bottles and pasteurized. A few months ago, I was disappointed because I didn't taste vibrant spices like was I was expecting and like the apple pie my friend makes with liquor instead. But after it sat a little while more and I let it mature a little more, I'm happy with it. It's still not vibrant but it's a really good and very wine like. I'm comfortable sharing the bottles with friends now, knowing that it will be something that they enjoy. Plus being about 14% is a plus also.

That gives me a lot of hope because I made some in June and I tasted it a week ago and it was still quite harsh.

This is a style that should age for several months. I made it in march and then transferred it back to the original juice bottles in June, then let them sit until this last week. There was a big change in the time.
