Seems like a lot of ginger, which is pretty powerful stuff. Personally, I'd take it down to no more than a 0.5 teaspoon. You can always add more later if you think it needs more.

I'm trying to brew a good pumpkin beer too. The first try tasted like because I used weizen yeast. I'm not an expert but I've got to ask, did the clove come back to bite you in the butt? Seems like a lot for such a powerful spice.

It's currently day 7 of fermentation and I've given the brew a try and it tastes really good but I think it needs more spice I might mix another lot of the same amount of spices or even half add them to a pot of boiled water and rack the pumpkin beer on top of it hopefully give it that much more of a kick. Can't wait until its done!

When did you add the spices? That's a whole lot (the ones I've brewed use one teaspoon TOTAL of all spices) so you should definitely be able to taste it. I add mine near flameout. Are you boiling yours the whole time?
