Default How do spice additions to no chill impact spice profile of beer?

I've had great success with the last few no chill batches I've made but now am interested in trying a Christmas beer with several spices including cinnamon, honey, ginger. They are called to be added @ 5 minutes.

Will adding these same amounts at five minutes(or flameout as some suggest with no chill) over/under spice the beer? Am I better dry spicing?

I brewed a Blue Moon clone earlier this year, and used the same amount of spices everyone else was using, put them in my cube, and I gotta say, NAILED IT! I think it's going to depend on the spice, but I'd start with what the recipe calls for. That said, if you're nervous about overdoing it, cut them back a bit. It'll still be beer

Did you add them @ the suggested time intervals?

No, I added them directly into the cube.
