I did mine with the 60 minute boil. I just cracked one open last night even thought it has only been about a week and a half since bottling (I wanted to see if it was even palatable so I could have the family try it out). Unless my memory is seriously off, my version tastes at least as good
(and probably better!) than the commercial version. The spices were not too overpowering, but they were noticeable. The hops is just right at 30 IBUs in my opinion. I am going to do a side-by-side with the commercial version on Thanksgiving. All I can say that if this beer gets better with age as all the comments suggest, I am going to be ecstatic around Christmas time
