Take the time and expense to use true cinnamon or Cannel or Ceylon
cinnamon (all same thing).  Cassia is what you maost often find in
grocery stores and is thick barky thing.  Cinnamon should be thin and
fragile curls of bark.  It is far smoother and very different from its
harsher cousin in Kroger.

Oh. Don't do that. Ground spices are almost impossible to clarify out.
Spend the little bit of
and get the sticks. Your mead will thank you for it.
