suggestions for recipes with cinnamon
« on: August 06, 2010, 04:40:14 PM »
One of my colleagues brought me a bag of cinnamon sticks from an Indian market.  Looking for ideas for a beer recipe. 

So far I've come up with:

- A dubbel with Orange and cinnamon
- A Christmas spiced beer (English Strong Ale base)
- Perhaps a Pumpkin spice beer (although I'm not sure I really want 5 gals of that stuff around)

Any other ideas?

Cider, mead, mulled wine. Pumpkin beer would be my first choice with that ingredient though.
The moral majority, is neither.

All great ideas.  I've a few cinnamon sticks that I could put to use.  Just don't know about the best technique or process to capture the flavor and/or aroma for the various suggestions listed above.

What is the best way to use it?  Leave the stick intact and just "soak" it in the secondary?  Grind it up?  Use cinnamon powder in the kettle?

There's a recipe I posted in this thread that uses cinnamon in a Christmas beer.
