I made some modifications to the order of things in your instructions. I haven't tried it yet, but to me it looks like it would work. My changes from the original are in blue:

1 (was 2): Leave three gallons of cider out to get to room temperature. Pour one gallon of Apple Cider into the large pot. Add in the cinnamon sticks, brown sugar, white sugar, nutmeg and hot chocolate. Bring to a boil.
2 (was 3): Boil for about 10 minutes, or as long as you need to properly dissolve all the ingredients. Remove from heat, allow to cool COMPLETELY.
3 (was 4): Remove cinnamon sticks, discard.
4 (was 1): Pour one gallon of Apple Cider into your primary.
5: Pour your glorious pot mixture into the primary. (Remove: “but save a little bit for washing the yeast down the funnel.”)
6: Pour your entire packet of yeast directly into the primary.
7: Use remaining cider (two gallons) to rinse pot and to wash yeast down funnel.

Different strokes for different folks! Let me know how it turns out, can't imagine much different.

Question though, if I were to carb this, would I do it like an ale? Thanks!

You are going to need to take precautions for bottle bombs, so while they carb be sure to store them in totes wrapped in towels.

You will use priming sugar and bottle like you would to carb anything else, BUT you have to pasteurize much faster than normal. I never let them go longer than 3-5 days before putting a stop to it. You can go longer or shorter based on experience.
