I made a similar style, although mine was only 2.5 gallons to test it out. I used 3 oz at 30min, 1 oz at 10 min, and 1 oz secondary. It has a really good ginger aroma with a slight ginger taste. I kinda wish it had more taste to it though. I would suggest taking out the 5 min addition and use that in secondary.
I used whole ginger root, washed and grated with a cheese grater. First time every using the root and it is very watery, so when you grate the whole root you need alot to get the right amount of oz..
