    Well I just tried a sample, it now it tastes pretty bad, almost like its oxygenated. I don't
    know how that could have happened?

    So what I ended up doing was adding 12 cinnamon sticks (one per half gallon). I know seems like
    a lot but I also added one stick to a normal half gallon of apple juice and am just going to
    siphon it o...

    I mean, it mixes in the sense that the powder is floating all around. But it remains powder and
    will soon settle to the bottom. It mixes but doesn't dissolve

    What I do when I add things to finished wines, meads, and ciders is to take out a sample from
    the carboy, and stir/dissolve my additions in that. You can take your concentrate and add the
    additions to...

    Well now I am reading that there are people that add cinnamon sticks to secondary so I think
    that might be my best bet.Right now the cider is VERY drinkable (abv is only around 6.5
    percent), but it do...

    In the past I have added store bought "pumkin pie" spice to my apple cider and it makes it
    delicious. The only problem is that since I added it after fermentation it doesn't dissolve
    into the juice it...

    Yeah I thought about using some old cider, thought it cleared up pretty quickly so I don't know
    if its really an issue. I have had trouble fermenting my cran-rasberry in the past, well not
    trouble nec...

    Yep it seems so, weird because I did the cranberry at the same time and it stayed clear as
    ever. But I can read the better bottle logo through it so it should be ready in time for the
    4th!

    I had a cider that had just cleared up, with quite a bit of sludge on the bottom. So I
    re-racket it into another carboy for some aging, being careful not to siphon any of the
    sediment on the bottom. N...

    Ive made some with montrachet. I sweeten mine with a few tbsps of concentrate per half gallon
    and it pretty much tastes just like cranberry juice. It takes forever for mine to ferment
    though.
