I wouldn't. When I made it it tasted great immediately and peaked quickly. It's still drinkable after a few months, but I like it much better when its fresh.

You can spice it however you like. I add the clove because I like it as a counterpoint, along with the cinnamon, to the esters from the yeast. It certainly isn't required, though! Tell us how it comes out!

Well, since it's Halloween time (almost!) I've got another batch of this stuff on the stove tonight. It's going to be a bit of a rush job, but I think if I double pitch I should be OK. XD We'll soon see if it's any good after 10 days, kettle to glass. I think it should be, especially since it's going in the bar with Vlad the Impairer, my new pumpkin imperial. I'm changing this one up this time, using some ground cinnamon in the boil instead of sticks (since I don't have any), and whole cloves. I'll let y'all know how it turns out.

Yes! It was actually a big hit at the Halloween party! We had 20 gallons on tap for something like 150 people over the course of the night (we do Halloween parties right at my house: 3 bands, a DJ, and the county police who came by to tell us to tone it down commenting that, "[they] never got to go to parties like this!" ). The ground cinnamon came through a little less than expected, so I think I might have to add more next time if I want it to still be there quite as much. Other than that, no problems whatsoever!

Nice! How much ground cinnamon did you use?

**RESURRECTION**
I'm going to make this, but use whole Cloves and halve the amount in the brew. Unless anyone says otherwise?!

Yikes, I need to check this thread more often! If you're using whole cloves I'd advise using *more*, not less, as your flavor extraction is improved with more surface area. Powdered cloves have more surface area than whole, so you'd need more to get the same flavor. Unless you want less clove flavor. It's barely there as it is, with such a small amount. I'm re-brewing this tonight, probably, so I'm going to be putting it even more through its paces as far as pushing the panic button goes!
