Just don't want to oxidize the beer when adding
Thanks in advance!
I boiled boiled the spices for about a minute or two, then took it off the boil and let it sit for 15 min. With a sanitized lid on my pot. I then cooled it down in an ice bath. While it was steeping for the 15 min, I ran some 180 degree water through my French Press then let it soak in starsan. Once the tea cooled down I poured it into my keg while it was filling from the fermenter. Closed my keg up turned on the gas and purged the air out, now it's carbonating in my kegerator.
Not sure if this is the proper way to do it, but it's always worked for me when I've added a tea to my beer.
Hope that helped.
