I did everything correct up till I was supposed to add the spices for the last 5 min of the boil. So when I woke up this morning I was thinking "Man this beer is gunna be awesome!", when I realized that I didn't add the spices. So I then got all the spices that I was supposed to put in and added it to the fermentation bucket and stirred them in as best as I could. So will that mess anything up? Will the beer be less favored? Thanks!
The spices will have a 'cooked' flavor in the cookies and adding them to the boil would have aligned those flavors more closely. Not cooking them will give you a slight difference in spice character but I wouldn't say you messed anything up flavor wise.
