I am concerned about adding the peppermint extract when you added your yeast. I would think that you would get more of that flavor if you added it to the secondary. It might and I just say might have some of the flavor wiped out by the yeast. Taste it before you rack to the secondary and if you want more then just add some to the secondary.

I bought a 1 oz bottle of extract and i used half at the beginning just as an experiment and if its not too strong i will add some more at secondary. I just hope the flavor of the peppermint isnt affected by the yeast. I really hope this thing turns out great

You probably have an ethanol infection now.

Take a gravity reading & taste the sample. Best way to see what you've got. Some beers just finish quickly.

Glad to hear it

With beer, if you think something's gone wrong, more often than not it winds up being fine.
