First off as the title suggests I am rather new to homebrewing. My first batch was Blackberry and Plain Mead(which is in secondary) and my first completed batch was Tart Cherry Apple cider which came out tasting amazing and at 5.25%ABV. My 2nd batch of Cider is Blackberry and plain both are 4.5gal which I racked and chilled today. I was thinking plain cider would be kind of boring so I was wondering if anyone had tried doing a caramel flavor using something like Brewers Best: Natural Caramel Flavoring. This is the brand I used for both my Blackberry mead and cider, I like the way the flavor came out with it. I was thinking doing part of the caramel apple with a small cut of a cinnamon stick in it. I can definitely say that the Tart Cherry Apple will probably be back the next batch, lol, its so freaking good. I am really enjoying homebrewing...I think I may need to build a wine rack soon, lol. Anyway back to my question, How do you think a Caramel Apple (with or without cinnamon) would turn out? My wife really loves caramel so I was thinking about it more for her and for bringing to family gatherings.
