Is 2.5lbs of ginger root a typo or correct? Seems like a lot.

I thought that too. The average store-bought root is only ounces and a tiny bit makes a huge impact.

Sorry to ask stupid question, but is cane sugar just ordinary sugar from the grocery?

Yes, just produced this kit using 1kg of brewing sugar (Dextrose).
Turned out very well, good sharp bite and lots of flavour.

Since you have made it, did you use 2.5 lbs of ginger?

What do you think about running some of that ginger through a juicer ro minimize the sediment? I have al electric juicer and I've had some thoughts about using it in conjunction with brewing. At least until I decide to make more traditional beers.

Sorry it took so long to reply. The cinnamon might be a good addition. The recipe, the way it is right now, I can really tast the ginger and that's about it. The cinnamon may or may not overpower it. I say give it a try and let us know.

I just checked my recipe and yes it was 2.5lbs of ginger. I have the recipe saved in promas and it have it entered as 40oz. I cannot find the original notes from when I made it, but I do rememberbuying two large hands of ginger and also using one small one I had at home. As for using a juicer, I just used a grater because I don't have a juicer. I just poured the cooled wort through a fine mesh strainer to get the "pulp" out.
