I've had great success with the last few no chill batches I've made but now am interested in trying a Christmas beer with several spices including cinnamon, honey, ginger. They are called to be added @ 5 minutes.

Will adding these same amounts at five minutes(or flameout as some suggest with no chill) over/under spice the beer? Am I better dry spicing?

I brewed a Blue Moon clone earlier this year, and used the same amount of spices everyone else was using, put them in my cube, and I gotta say, NAILED IT! I think it's going to depend on the spice, but I'd start with what the recipe calls for. That said, if you're nervous about overdoing it, cut them back a bit. It'll still be beer

Did you add them @ the suggested time intervals?

No, I added them directly into the cube.
