I am planning on brewing the Cranberry Wit (though I'm changing it to Pomegranate) featured in the Longshot '08 pack but I'm a little confused regarding the hop/spicing schedule. Here are the pertinent portions as published by BYO:
Step by Step (All-Grain)
Bring wort to boil for 20 minutes then add sterling and golding hops. Two minutes later add a tea bag of biter orange, cinnamon, coriander, grains of paradise.
Cool wort to around 70 °F (21 °C) and pitch yeast.
Boil 60 minutes. Add hops and spices at times indicated in the all-grain recipe.
I read this to mean that there should be a 60 minute boil for both all-grain and extract with the only hop addition at 40 minutes and all spices added at 38 minutes. The hop schedule seems more or less consistent with other wit recipes but most of the time it seems like spices are added at the 10min/5min/flameout point. Am I simply reading this wrong, or has anyone else added spices at or near this point? Should I ignore the spice directions and go with somewhere between 10-0 minutes?
Here is a link to the full article/recipe in case I didn't include enough above:
