Hey guys, I have a quick recipe to bounce off the forum. My wife is suddenly all hyped up for a good pumpkin ale this season, but being a huge fan of wheats, she really has her heart set on a pumpkin wheat style ale. So she has summoned me to brew something "wheaty and pumpkiny" up for her. Here's what I'm thinking:
5lb 2 row
5lb white wheat
0.75lb crystal 60
3lb 100% pumpkin in mash
1.5 tbsp pumpkin pie spice last min of boil
She's looking for a mild wheaty ale with a nice hit of spice. Should I add some brown sugar to dry it up a bit? I'm a little undecided there. Hops will be mild with probably just a small bittering addition at 60 minutes. The recipe sounds fine in my head but I just thought I'd run it by you guys. I'd really appreciate the input.
