Enjoy the beer that you deserve.
What it does :
Cinnamon is an attractive candidate for adding flavor to high-gravity, winter and holiday beers.
What it is:
Cinnamon is obtained from the dried bark of small evergreen trees and originated in the Far East. It has a sweet pungent aroma that is closely associated with pastries and confections. It is available in powder and stick (quill) forms.
Use from 1 to 3 cinnamon sticks (quills) per 5 gallons. Add 10 to 15 minutes from the end of the boil.
Use cinnamon in stick (quill) form instead of powder for easy removal before bottling. This will also preclude any potential harshness in flavor or mouthfeel in the finished beer.
