Sounds awesome, I love spiced autumn flavors, but watch out for the mace, that stuff and nutmeg can overpower real fast

I used cardamom seed in my autumn mead cyser and the slightly lemony herby flavor is amazing, it's been cold crashing for 3 days now but no sing of clearing at all. Thinking I need to hit the lhbs for some super kleen. You should try the cardamom in a test batch if you get the time, the smell is a perfect mirror of the taste FYI

This sounds quite good. Sounds like a gallon batch to me. If so, I might have to put this on my To-Brew List.

Ignore the scribble on the bottle that is left over from an old batch!
