I just brewed a gluten free extract as it was given as a gift. I am curious what everyone has done on the second fermentation to give it some flavor so its not so boring. Any thoughts?

Probably best to provide your base recipe. From there you can get advice on spices, hops etc.

Looks like the Northern Brewer Kit. I did that one and it came out really good. I have been doing variations on that basic recipe. Not sure what is in the spice pack, but in later versions I used 8 grams of coriander and 8 grams of orange peel from my LHBS. In later versions I also added a dry hop of an ounce of Cascade. I did it once in the primary and once in the secondary. There are lots of threads in this forum on dry hopping. In the secondary, I used a hop bag that I boiled for 15 minutes, cooled and added pellets in the mouth of the better bottle. Had no problem getting it out after racking to the keg. Good luck.

Dry hopped with 4 oz of cascade makes a pretty good IPA
