Just brewed this SA Old Fezziwig clone yesterday as a 10-gallon extract batch, and the recipe called for 2 oz grated ginger, which I forgot to add. I'm looking for suggestions about what to do. Should I just leave it as is? Add a little to the primary or secondary? Thanks in advance.

12.3 lb Dark Malt Extract
4.0lb Dry Dark Malt Extract (DME)
3lb Clover Honey instead of the 6 in the original recipe

1lb Chocolate Malt
1lb Crystal Malt (80-L)
1lb Black Patent Malt

4oz Northern Brewer Hops (Bittering)
2oz Cascade Hops (Aroma)

6 Oranges, Peeled and Quartered
6 Cinnamon Sticks
4 Whole Nutmegs
12 Whole Cloves
2 tablets whirlfloc
2oz. grated ginger
2 Wyeast Irish Ale 1084
