I'm going to use (4) 15oz cans --
and then mash it in my MLT along with base grains and specialty grains.
I'm brewing Northern Brewer Smashing Pumpkin Kit -- it calls for a 8lb Pumpkin, but doesn't mention using canned in place of.
I'm sure you could do a search in the forum and get a pretty good idea how much others are using when adding canned pumpkin.
