So, just an update on my tweaked batch of this. Carb isn't quite there yet but I have had a
couple of bottles so far, and I can honestly say that it is great! I used dark brown sugar
instead of light,...

So, instead of cinnamon extract or powder I am simmering a cinnamon stick with my caramel
sauce. Hopefully that will be a nice compromise. I am also adding a tsp of vanilla extract,

Anyone know how long SP can sit in the fermenter and still be good? Long story short is I make
it up for my wife and her friends. I made a batch back in December but unfortunately my wife
