Southern Tier Pumking Clone??
 
It's that time again! I brewed the recipe below with decent results. I have been on brewing hiatus for almost a year now (got married, lost job, had baby, got new job) and I NEED to brew!! Anyone have any suggestions to tweak the recipe? I think spicing is pretty close but the sweetness was a little off and it definitely needs more vanilla. Do vanilla beans work better than REAL vanilla (not the cheap stuff). My wife loves this stuff and our anniversary is on Halloween so I need to brew this weekend or next. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

scraping and soaking vanilla beans in a liquor will help extract more flavor than if you were to boil or use any other method.

how do you plan to get that graham cracker pumpkin pie crust flavor in there? last year i used the Radical Brewing gingerbread recipe with pumpkin thinking that would help with the pie crust flavor but it wasn't even close.

I thought about throwing in some biscuit malt or roasted barley, but I'm completely open to suggestions.

victory is pretty much the same as biscuit. you could up that to 1pound if you want.

if you dont buy in bulk and have a sack of 2row, it might be a good idea to replace some of it with 6row or maris otter

I brewed this over the weekend. Smells great so far. I'll be adding vanilla beans to the secondary. I think that is the ST's secret ingredient.

Actually they use a vanilla extract that I can't remember where it comes from. I posted this about this time last year and there are notes from talking with someone at the brewery. I had one of the 2 left last night and it is lacking in sweetness and vanilla. Any ideas how to increase the sweetness other than the lactose? I'll have to see if I can find my notes from the last brew, what did you mash at?

I mashed pretty high at about 155. I figure it will finish around 1.25-30 or so, and that should be sweet enough. I wouldn't add lactose, they don't list it as an ingredient and it's already a fairly high gravity beer. It doesn't need it IMO.

When do you add the brown sugar? I tried a pumpkin ale last year, but was low on cinnamon. I like how you are using more cinnamon. I may have to give it another shot!

go easy on all the spices, it's extremely easy to overspice! you'll see...

Oh god, super-bump. I want to brew a pumpking clone SOOOOOOOOO badly.

How did you go about adding the spices to the beer? I've heard of some people boiling them in water and straining it to get the right taste.
