I threw in a cinnamon stick and a couple of cloves with 5 gallons during fermentation. Turned out good.

The five gallons of apfelwein that I have is secondary now has:
2 bourbon vanilla beans
3 ceylon cinnamon sticks
2 cloves
This stuff is amazing just a week into secondary. After aging it will be much better. If you can find ceylon cinnamon you should get it. It is a much smoother and more intricate flavor than the cassia that you can get at most stores.

I wouldn't worry about it. The alcohol in the cider should be enough

A little bit different, but I've made a spiced Graff twice over the past couple of years. It turns out great. Posted the recipe on my blog:

This. I've never had an infection in a wine and I'm not the biggest stickler for sanitation. You'll be fine.

Yeah, I break mine up a little for more surface area. If you add it during the ferment all the cinnamony goodness will leave the airlock. I have not tried allspice though.
