I recommend boiling cinnamon sticks. You get all of the flavor without any of the sediment. My last batch I use 4 cinnamon sticks in 2 cups of lightly boiling water for 10 minutes. It came out extremely tasty!

Yeah I did that with my second batch and reduced the ground cinn by half as well and still got floaters lol. But I have a gallon set off to the side with 3 sticks dry hopping. Been that way since end of February, so interesting to see how it comes out.

Sad. I have had the same issue all three batches but people still enjoy it. I tell the, they need to mix it up and tell them its the Carmel syrup that settles out. They then enjoy. I don't serve this in a glass - instead I just pop the top of a bottle and go from there.

Sry if this was already addressed in the thread but I couldn't find it. Has anyone aged this cider and does it get better/worse/same with age?

It is good at 2 weeks of bottle conditioning, better at a month. It is awesome at 2 months, and I have no idea about 3 months or beyond because by that time, it is all gone.

I used 3 cans of concentrate but everything else was the same. Turns out I bottled this batch on October 1, so it's almost 7 months aged!
