I'm trying to come up with a recipe for a brown ale. I've heard of people using brown sugar in brown ales, but has anyone ever used cinnamon sugar? I'm sure someone has experimented with it...
I want to add just a hint of cinnamon to the flavor of the beer. Nothing extreme though. How much cinnamon sugar should I use and when should I add it? If I were to use regular cinnamon (not cinnamon sugar), how much would I need to add, and when should I add it?
If cinnamon sugar is just sugar with a bit of cinnamon mixed in, I might as well just use regular cinnamon and maybe add some brown sugar to the beer as well. Thoughts?
