3 tsp Cinnamon
2 tsp Ginger
2 tsp Nutmeg
1.5 tsp Allspice
1.5 tsp Cloves
1 tsp Cardamom

The cardamom is my secret ingredient. Adds a nice little floral/citrus undertone. Everything should be freshly ground for the best flavor except the ginger because you'd have to use fresh ginger to go that route. You could use like a tbls of fresh ginger instead of you wanted.

Brewed on Sunday and just missed my target temp by 1-2 degrees but that's expected on my system. Did a very poor job on the transfer and ended up with a crap-ton of turb in the fermenter. This will require some extra steps to clear out but no worries. I pitched the slurry of a 1.5L starter and had noticeable activity after 4 hours...the next day the fermenter was jumping. Can't wait!!!

AWESOME!

A short secondary after 4-6 weeks in primary will probably do wonders and be all you need. Gelatin might help a lot as well if you're into doing that.
