Does the Cinnamon Stick in Ginger Root produce enough flavor by only leaving it in the secondary for 5 minutes?

I put the cinnamon sticks and ginger in at flame out. You can add more after fermentation is complete if you taste a sample and it needs more.

Brewed 10g. of this last Thursday. Used Irish Ale yeast with a big starter and it's smelling awesome! I lightened up the grain bill and spices just a bit and will adjust the spices as necessary at secondary.

So do you dump those sticks and ginger in to your primary fermenter?

I do not unless any sneaks through the autosiphon. If it needs more I'll add it at secondary.

I skipped the honey because I forgot to pick some up. Normally when I do use honey, I put it in at either flame out or secondary. Seems like the honey flavors remain more distinct when I put it in at secondary.
