    I'd like to try adding a bit of cider spice to a few bottles of Blond ale that I will be bottling in a few days. I thought I could dissolve the spices in boiling water and add a few ml of the concentrate to each bottle before filling. Any thoughts or better suggestions? I only want to do 12 bottles not the entire batch. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas. Tom

    Sounds fine to me.
    I will make a tea with spices and add to a finished beer after kegging. This way I an add just a little at a time so I don't over spice it.
    Go for it and play around with the amount in different bottles. Just make sure to label the bottles so you can identify what you like for the next time.
    Worst case is you have 12 bottles of beer you don't like and you'll drink them anyhow.
    Good luck and let us know how they come out.
