I just made a beligian wit from AHS. I was hoping to add a bit of paradise seed that i had purchased, but it slipped my mind.

It has been in the primary for about a week. Could I just make a "tea" out of the spices and add the water to the primary (we were considering skipping the secondary) or is there anything else i can do to get a bit of the paradise seed flavor??

The "tea" will work just fine.

Yeah, just boil some water with the paradise seeds for 15 minutes. Then cool that solution down and dump it right into primary. With a witbier you don't need a secondary/bright tank.
