Had a hard time getting this to develop a head. My LHBS recommended turning upside down once really quick to let some co2 release.
I started drinking a 1.5 weeks but the spice notes really didn't develop until a good three weeks into bottling.
Ginger and citrus peel notes were not really prominent I would use twice as much as recipe states next time.
Right now this is tasting really good different from most things I drink. I'm working on pictures and I'll try to update as it ages.
