    Was at the Dry Dock Brewery's seventh anniversary yesterday when someone planted a very insidious bug in my brain: Spicing my doppelbock. Now I don't want to waste all five gallons of my rather good beer on this experiment but the idea will not leave me alone. I'm thinking my wife's Pfeffernuesse spices added to a gallon of beer while it goes through its last couple weeks of lagering:

    1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
    1/8 Tsp Cloves
    1/8 Tsp Nutmeg
    Dash of black pepper

    Doing this as a spice tea. Thoughts?
    I'll let you know how it comes out.

    Will prime with molasses to see if I can get closer to the cookie flavor. The Doppel itself is nice, sweet, cookie-like with rich toffee flavor, almost ready. I'll be bottling around 1 Dec.
