Awesome! The spices should meld into the beer as it conditions in the bottle.

Ok, so I just popped one of these open as curiosity got the better of me. Its been in the bottle for about two weeks after three weeks in the fermenter. This beer is already tasting good! It still tastes green so I'm really excited to see how this develops over the next few weeks. Cinnamon was probably the dominant flavor as I figured it would be, but not to the point where it was annoying. I'll hold judgement as its still young, but I'd probably reduce the cinnamon a bit when I brew this again. The citrus and ginger notes did come through a bit as well, and I hope the individual flavors continue to develop. I'm very excited for this one!

Going to bottle mine sometime between now and Sunday. Can't wait. Going to try very hard to not crack one until the 20th of December.

Bottling mine now, sample tastes almost like a ginger cookie but not quite. I'm adding another 1/2 of the spice mix with my batch priming sugar. OG was 1.072 or there abouts, finished up at 1.014. No banana flavour that I notice; I was worried with the warmth my ferment hit.
