Hey guys, I plan on brewing my first Pumpkin Ale next week and have been researching the best ways to add Spices to it. I'm sure it's been discussed extensively on here, but curious what the best route to take is for the best flavor. Right now, my thought is to add Ginger and Cinnamon Spice with 10 min left in the boil - I heard both of these spices need longer to really impart good flavor. Both would be the powder form - sounds like the more these spices are broken down, the stronger their flavor is. Then thinking of adding Nutmeg and Allspice right before cooling the wort. My questions are: Cinnamon Sticks vs. Cinnamon Powder? For a 2 gallon batch, what amounts have you had success with? Is it better to add Cinnamon at the boil, or to drop some sticks into the Secondary? Or both? Curious what ya'll have had success with in brewing Pumpkin style beers.
