Default Randy Mosher's Gingerbread ale recipe

in moshers radical brewing book he talks about making a beer that taste like gingerbread using a lightly hopped brown ale as a base and adding 4gs of cinnamon, 2gs of ground ginger, 1g of allspice, and 1 gram of clove(in another section of the book he mentions that he uses nugmeg also but it isn't listed as an ingredient.) he says to just add these at the end of the boil and you should have liquid bread.

has anyone tried this yet? also should i use the nutmeg while making this and if so how much.

Can't really answer your question but I've been thinking of trying to make a Gingerbread Porter. I would probably do a Brown Porter and then some of the spicing you are talking about.

I tried this one last year and it was a big hit! So i'm making a 10 gallon batch tonight. I didn't use nutmeg nor clove and it turned out pretty damn tasty.

How long did you have each of the spices in the boil?

Drop those spices in with two minutes left ... gives you a nice aromatic component!

I used the spices he mentions in my pumpkin ale, just brewed 10 gallons on Sat. It smells freaking amazing, literally just like pumpkin pie.
