Ok, done I will stir frequently and report back later with results. Thank you for the advice.

any way to counteract overbearing spice addition?

I made a "cider" last month. Really it was made from apple juice and not apple cider. After I made and tasted apfelwein, I wanted something stronger, with more to it. I mixed the juice with honey,...

Not really. It was in a better bottle. Once I realized what I did, I added as much cold water as would fit, but that had to be less than 1/3 gal. But I think after sitting for as little as an hour in...
