added my p...

Some people hate cloves. I.e., I used to love german hefe's, now I can't touch them. Ech.Spices
are a bit of a wild card. I think they can differ greatly due to age, form, origin, etc.FWIW, I

I used pre-ground cinnamon, fresh grate nutmeg, and fresh ground clove and after a week in the

This batch was for summer outings and taking on the boat. I did not want to be lugging a ton of

Several things jump out in your situation. 1) It's very difficult to get a good pour at room

Having a similar issue with my new keg setup. The kegs and lines are all at room temperature. I
