I am curious if the ginger was fresh or powdered or crystallized?

Thinking about it now, I wouldn't use the pectin enzyme. I thought about using it because of the vanilla bean, but I discovered that I just didn't let it age long enough.
I used ground ginger bought from the store.

Sorry it took so long to respond, I haven't been able to get online. I also haven't been able to brew anymore. I had to move out of state, and all of my brewing equipment got left at a friends house, due to not having room to bring it.

I don't know why, but that is the saddest thing I've heard all day today...

I have a batch of this going (except I am using D47 because it's chilly season), and it smells freaking amazing.

I realize this thread is old but want to make a vanilla chai recipe and like the sound of this one a lot.

Question: It sounds like you add spices (ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, clove, nutmeg allspice, vanilla bean) up front...I've never heard or read that this is a good idea....don't you lose the aroma and a lot of the character of those spices? I thought spices should be added to the secondary only. Could anyone weigh in on this?

I just brewed a Chai lager and used 40 Chai Tea bags to make a tea and put that in my wort at the end if the boil. It turned out perfect.
