Notes

190g Ginger grated plus a whole sliced nutmeg baked in the oven for 5 min on baking paper to remove oils. Added at start of boil.

Day 6 added about 100g of sliced ginger plus a whole sliced nutmug (baked) in a sock soaked in starsan as yeast activity had driven off ginger aroma.

Pretty much perfect balance of flavours. Good biscuit plenty of ginger and a hint of nutmeg.
