WiseEyes, I've never cold conditioned before. When should I drop the temp in my fermenter, and to what temp?
Transfering to secondary does not stop fermentation, make sure this thing is fully attenuated before bottling or your bottles could explode. It doesnt matter if the final gravity is a few points off.

also, go easy on spices.

The hop amounts will vary depending on the alpha acid content of your hops, just match tghe IBU'S of each addition.

Brewed my 2011 batch today. This time I used the updated recipe adjusting the hops to hit 30 IBU and adding ginger and cinnamon sticks with 5 left in the boil. I peeled the ginger and just cut it in half and threw it in. Honey at Flameout.

So after two more weeks in the secondary my ginger flavor was still overwhelming the cinnamon. I decided to add more cinnamon flavor by boiling three more sticks for five minutes in a cup of water. It currently is very spicy and I imagine will be for awhile. Thinking about bottling and busting out in July.
