Just brewed my first batch, one gallon's worth. Left the nutmeg out. Scaled it like this:

1 Gallon Tree Top Cider
3.25 oz White Sugar
6.5 oz Dark Brown Sugar
1 packet Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate powder
1 cinnamon stick

Here's a pic. Left to right - JAOM, oldmate's Caramel Apple Cider, Drunken Emu Hard Cider

This has been fermenting for 6 days now and has only gone down from 1080 to 1070. Now im a beginner and this is my first cider but does it normally start this slow? It still tastes awesome tho!

Checking gravity after 6 days on a recipe that calls for a 1.000 FG is really just wasting cider. You're literally drinking a delicious apple juice at this point, with the ABV of a cough drop in it.

Just forget about the cider for a couple weeks at a minimum. In face, get another cider going (Try oldmate's Caramel Apple Cider) so you have something to tinker with while nukinfuts29's becomes an alcoholic beverage.
