Hi all!

I'm brewing up 10 gallons of an Oatmeal Stout for the holidays and want to 'spice' it up a bit.

I want to use the following spices, but unsure of how much to use:

Cinnamon - amount for 10 gallons?
Nutmeg - amount for 10 gallons?
Vanilla - I used this in a burbon porter before using whiskey to extract the scraped vanilla from the beans.

Anyone have a preference on when to add the spices? 5 mins, flameout?

Thanks in advance!

I always add the spices at flameout. Aromatics are volatile so they'll boil off. I generally start at about 5grams per spice on 5gal batches, and scale up from there if I want more taste on the next batch. A little bit goes a long way and it's easy to overspice beer.
