I am looking for some direction. I am brewing a Winter Wheat Ale tomorrow and would like some feedback on the recipe. I will be using 6 pounds wheat DME, and 1 pound 2 row malt (steeped for 30 min at 150). On hand, I have 2oz hallerau, 0.5 oz Cascade, and 1 oz fuggle hops. Any advice on a hop schedule? I am trying to keep this moderately hoppy. I am also thinking about adding nutmeg, allspice, and cinnamon sticks. Should the cinnamon sticks be added whole are should they be ground up or crushed? Any other suggestions on spices would be appreciated. In case it matters, I do partial boils in a 5 gallon pot, use an IC for cooling, and will be using dry wheat yeast (S-33 I think). This is for a 5 gallon batch. Thanks for any feedback.

It was horrible. I over spiced it, but I learned several lessons as a result of this brew.
