I brewed an extract version of this recipe and I had emailed GL to see if I was on the right track. In my recipe I noted that I was adding 1.25 oz of ginger and 3 cinnamon sticks at 5 minutes left in the boil and my response from Mark Hunger was that they use equal amounts of ginger and cinnamon and they add it at 60 and keep it in for the entire boil.
I have my batch that has conditioned in the bottles and the taste was very good, and my only issue was that I think I went a little too heavy with the honey (I used 1.5 lbs). Just brewed up my second batch over the weekend and cut back on the honey by half a pound so we shall see how that turns out.
I just got into BIAB so my next batch will be doing AG using BIAB!
Edit: Forgot to mention that Mark also commented on the hop schedule they use. He said they have 3 total hop additions with the first two being Hallertau and the last one being Cascade.
