Put it in vodka for a couple days and pitch the whole thing. Better to be safe than sorry.

Break it up before pitching, it will extract better

Make sure to sanitize. Cracked a bottle of my still apple cinn mead after year+ of aging and its lightly carbed....DAMNIT!!!

I trace it back to the cinnamon sticks since this was part of a 6way split and ive had 3 out of 6 now.
