First time I used McCormick ground cinnamon and freshly ground nutmeg. This time around I just used McCormick ground cinnamon and already ground nutmeg.

I'd be wary of adding whole cinnamon sticks in. I'd be afraid that it would become too spiced. Remember a lot goes a long way; .5tsp for cinnamon for 5 gallons and you will be able to taste it.

did the nutmeg being fresh ground or McCormick change the taste at all? Which way would you recommend?

I taste more of a nutmeg flavor in the pre-ground. Reason being (I think) is that when I ground it the grinds were crumb sized. Pre-ground is much finer, I'm guessing which disperses the flavor more. Either way it came out great. I'd say go with whichever you have on hand.

Buy Whirlfloc tablets and throw one in with 15 minutes left in the boil.

Haha, happy to help.

Those two strains should be close enough. I say go for it!

Harpoon Winter Warmer
All Grain - turned out fantastic. Will be an every winter brew, probably would keep making it in October to give it time to mellow in terms of spices and alcohol, though there wasn't any alcohol warmness the first time I made it.

Recipe Notes
next time, soak spices in rum, or some alcoholic drink (small amount) before adding to the fermenter; secondary it, then add it the next day or so. had a little mold grow after several weeks in the secondary just next to the floating seasoning islands.

fantastic beer. not a great head retention, but bottled off the keg for 1st time. smooth smooth. no alcohol warmness, consider going up on ABV next time. spices were perfect, very mild and chill but present. make each year no matter what.
