Mace, 1/2 oz
1/2 oz package of ground Mace (Myristica fragrans)
Mace is a spicier and more pungent version of nutmeg made from the gum-like substance that cradles the nutmeg seed. It lacks the accompanying sweetness of nutmeg. Mace is generally 7%-10% of pumpkin pie spice blends.
Directions for Use
Add 1/4 oz at a time to taste. Mace has a very stong flavor, and should be added a little at a time. You can add this at packaging (bottling or kegging) to taste, or at the end of the boil, 10 minutes or less.
