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??

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.
