I did something kinda weird wanted opinions... I boiled 2 cups of water added 2 cinnamon sticks with 1.5 cups dark brown sugar.

I transferred to keg and added Potassium metabisulfite and potassium sorbate like the recipe calls for AND added the above mixture for more taste and cinnamon, then added 2 frozen apple juice concentrates.

Is that ok? do I have anything to worry about?

Also when can I drink? its sat a day after adding all that. Is it safe to drink?

This is my first time brewing anything, so sorry if this is a stupid question. But i mixed everything and now im a few days in and i see a separation at the bottom of the jug where it seems there is a layer of something. Do i need to mix it up, just leave it, or did i mess up somewhere

That is called the lees. It is totally normal. I'm pretty new at this too, so I'm not sure on everything in it, but some of it is yeast. When/if you rack, you leave the lees and only rack or bottle the liquid above it.

I made a trash can full of this last year. It was so good, we just ran out, we're going to make 2 trash cans full this year. We just throw a party and a bunch of cats throw down on it, and everyone walks away with 5-10 Gal before the holidays. We skipped the backsweetening, and carbed like normal- still delicious. so much flavor going on, it's real pleasurable as a dry cider.

It is a shrub that grows in northern swamps. It is used as a bug repellant, acne treatment and causes abortions. Use with caution :-)
