Not sure about those spices id say. Yeast should fulfill spice notes

The airlock bubbled frequently for three days. On the fourth day it is one small bubble per minute.

Sound normal for Wyeast 1388 ?

the ambient temperature is 67.

sounds normal for all yeast. Check the gravity after 2 weeks with your hydrometer

It's my second batch of beer.

I had about a week of frequent airlock activity before it started to calm down with my first beer using s-05 yeast.

I understand it's a variable. It just seemed like this batch with 1388 could have stalled a little too soon since I don't have much experience.

I haven't checked the gravity yet since it's only been in the primary for five days.

I'll raise the temps and give it a swirl.
