(Not to big on that spice) Im not concerned about the alcohol level, just would like to have it turn out the way it is supposed to.
No. When you add the extract does not matter in determining the gravity.
We see threads like this on a regular basis, and the problem is usually that the person did not adequately stir in the extract at the end of the boil before measuring the gravity.
