Default Another Pumpkin Ale Thread

Hi guys,

I'm about 5 days from bottling a pumpkin ale. I tasted the Wort a week after fermenting and it tasted great.

I would however like a little more spice flavor.

Is their anything I can add to the Wort before Bottling to give it s little kick?

You dip in wisky to kill bacteria?

I toasted the cinnamon stick @ 350 for 15-30 minutes, then just dropped it in secondary.

Why not drop it in the primary after a week?
