Default Pumpkin ale not very pumpkin smelling.

I recently brewed a pumpkin ale, it's in the primary coming up on two weeks tomorrow. Took a solid smell of it today, and got zero pumpkin smell. I used NB smashing pumpkin's recipe, except I added an additional 1tsp at the end of boil, making it 2 total tsp. will this smell develop during the secondary or bottle conditioning? Am I able yo add more pumpkin spice at the stage? Thanks.

Fermentation blew out allot off of mine too.. just do a tsp at bottling time. Mix well with your priming sugar going into the bottling bucket...

Would I need to do any type of sanitizing prior to adding it to my priming sugar? Thanks.

i wouldnt worry about it.. you could make a tincture with it but when i did that with pumpkin spice it brought out the cinnamon over everythin else and made it a little hot.. i would just add it to the water sugar mixture when its cooling and call it good!!
