Good, I've got about 16 gallons of juice from a honeycrisp tree in the neighborhood and I'd love to find ways to use it all.

I'll add my batch to the thread!

Just pressed about 5.5 gallons of fresh cider from a local honeycrisp tree in the neighborhood. Added 2 lbs of corn sugar and 6 campden tablets to kill off any wild yeast. I will let it sit for 48 hours then pitch Nottingham. I have a packet of danstar but may swap it for another brand. OG is at 1.072.

After 2 weeks my cidar ( I used S-04 instead of Notty) has only dropped to 1.020 from 1.048. I'm a beer brewer, so I'm kind of surprised it hasn't already finished fermenting. I'll check it in a week and see if it drops anymore. If not, I might pitch something else to finish it up.. I just don't know what yet. I have wine yeast and a few strains of washed ale yeast.

Oh noes! I have the same problem!! Haven't tasted it yet, but a lot of my battles have gross stringy floating gunk

Im considering dumping this batch and starting over, but anyone have ideas on preventing this? Everything else went pretty smooth, i started with apple juice with an SG of 1.0064 and almost 2 months later it finished at 1.002.

Well on the upside... you can't taste them or feel them in your mouth. It's just ascetic. It tastes amazing.

I just kegged this. Stirred and shook like mad. Went to take a sample....ALL syrup. Will it mix with time? Shake it everyday? Anyone have any advice?

You mean that stringy goop at the bottom made from the cinnamon & sugar? You can shake all you want, it'll just sink to the bottom again.

So the cinnamon syrup will never mix? Then what's the point of putting it in?

The flavor is imparted from the oils in the cinnamon so it does it's job. and most of the brown sugar dissolves just a small amount is in that goopy stuff.

I made my syrup purposefully thinner to avoid a distribution issue- has anyone tried this with any success? Still have another week in the carboy before I'll add the syrup.
