Hello all! I am about to keg a batch of apfelwein and was thinking of changing it a bit for the holidays. My first thought was pumpkin pie spice (halloween).

Any thoughts on or experience with this?

Think of something inspirational. Then pretend I wrote it here.

But then it's not apfelwein, it's a spiced cider. Pumpkin pie spice generally contains cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and allspice, and nutmeg. You might want to use fresh (unground) spices for your drink. The ratio appears to be
1 nutmeg: 1 allspice: 2 ginger: 4 cinnamon. Call it one stick of cinnamon, a small piece of ginger, two allspice seeds, and 1/4 of a nutmeg seed.
Fermenting: Blackberry Wine
Aging: Mulberry Wine, Mint Mead, Dandelion Wine, Mesquite Mead
Drinking: Apfelwein
On Hand: Peach Mango Wine, Huck's Cider, Mulberry Mead, Orange Spice Mead, Cyser, Apfelwein, Maple Cinnamon Mead, Hard Cider, Brown Sugar Cider
