Nice, I'm going to have to give this a try. Do you think it matters whether you use a cinnamon stick or ground cinnamon? I have ground cinnamon but no cinnamon sticks.

Yummy, let us know how it turns out and I may try it. Perfect season for it right now too.

I used 1/8 tsp of clove instead of whole clove. I'm not too strict when I first try a batch, as long as I keep very precise records. lol I would HATE to end up with a winner and have no idea how to recreate it.

And also, not sure if you know this or not, but most food stores have cinnamon sticks packaged for sale in a mexican spice section. These are generally half the price of the name brand ones. I'm cheap, what can i say! lol

I'm also getting ready to start a 5 gallon batch of Skeeter Pee. Pretty excited about the prospect of an easily sustained supply of beverage.

I have a similar going but added 1 cup of pumpkin pie filling to it. It's only been 3 weeks, but so far it's acting like it should.

I did a batch but didn't add pumpkin or spices until I racked to secondary.

Ground cinnamon will have more carbs than the stick. You can see this if you make a strong hot tea of each. The ground cinnamon will be a little glumpy and sweet, while the stick will be fluid and not as sweet. That's merely because the ground herb has more surface area.

By the way, stick cinnamon is awesome in high proof alcohol. An everclear extraction (tincture) of cheap Indian-market bulk packed cinnamon yielded a gorgeous red color and slightly sweet and astringent yumminess. I may try that in a mead...
