Brewed this this past weekend. I hope I didn't leave too much spice in the kettle - it had more aroma than the carboy does. When I rack to keg, I may boil a cup of water and add a little bit more spice.

The yeasties are chugging away!

I haven't really got into all grain brewing yet but this beer sounds like it would be amazing! Any suggestions for using extract and grain?

First taste today - not much spice flavor. I think my fear of leaving too much spice in the kettle is confirmed.

I think I'm going to boil a cup of water, add some more spice, cool it, and chunk it in. Any thoughts about this?

it's not supposed to have a heavy spice profile. The rest of the spices should be singing backup to the ginger. If you don't taste any ginger then you messed up somewhere.

I would throw all the spices into a spice ball and boil 3 or 4 cups of spring water for 5 minutes. leave the spice ball in there and cover the pot as it cools. When it gets to room temp, take the spice ball out and pour it into your bottling bucket or keg. Then rack on top of the spice water.
