So I have been wanting to make a pumpkin beer for sometime after my absolute failure 4 years ago (it was my only batch that i dumped all 5 gallons). This time I am taking a different approach. My last beer, a brown ale, is my hopeful base. I have a fairly solid recipe, so i made an extra gallon, when I keg, I will put the last gallon aside into two growlers and add spices to test the concoction...
I was thinking of doing something different, other than a basic pumpkin beer, so here are my two ideas
- Pumpkin Pie and Bourbon Brown Ale
- Pumpkin Pie Coffee Brown Ale
Anybody have any thoughts or opinions on either of them, or suggestions on how to execute them (assuming your comment isn't terrible)
