I am in the process of brewing a holiday ale right now. It came with a packet of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, sweet orange peel...). I accidentally added these for the steeping phase instead of with the hops. (I start the boil in 7 minutes). Did I just ruin my beer? And if you read this right away, is there something I should do different to make up for my mistake when I get to the hops?

Maybe you boiled off some of the spice flavors...but I'm sure that they'll still be there in the end result.

Since I'm planning on drinking it in December that may actually be better.

I think the good part about it is you know what the spices are so come fermenting time, if you use a secondary and don't feel like it has enough spice, you can always add a bit of cinnamon and/or nutmeg
