sxs, I have picked up 2 bottles of cinnamon sticks, grade A clover honey, and two quarts of Jim Beam. Do you reccommend 3 or 4 cinnamon sticks per quart? I plan on doing the long term (1 year) aging. Anything else I need to know? Thanks!:bow

sxs, I hope I didn't mess up, I put 8 ounces,(1 cup) of honey in the mason jar, 3 cinn. sticks, and then the jim beam. Shook for 2 minutes. The honey container said nt. wt. 24 ozs., but when I filled the mason jars to the 8 ounce line on the jars I used half the bottle in 1 quart, Half in the other. Either the jars are wrong or the honey container is wrong or I'm an idiot which is probally the case. According to the honey jar, I should have 8 oz. left in it. 1 cup in the mason jars was alot of honey. I await your help! Thanks.:confused:

Whew! Thanks sxs! I would have hated to dissappoint you and the riverboat captain by messing up the first batch I made!:pra I'll let you know how it turns out.
Mr. graybeard, that very thought crossed my mind last night when I looked at that concoction in that jar! It sure looked good but I fought the urge.:cry

Use the cimm sticks to stir hot tea, put the honey on biscuits, swap the JB for Dickel and drink! Old SXS don't know what he's talking about.
