When you say large pumpkin, can I get more details?

Seems like that time of year to revive this thread again. Really researching how to try and do this beer, and I'd love to hear an update from those of you that posted last year.

What would you do differently? Were you happy with your results? Are you trying it again this year?

Let's talk pumpkin beers again.

Going to make this beer in a few weeks, except with sweet potatoes. Should I use fresh or powdered ginger?

Definitely use candied ginger, not the others.

I love Pumking. I've attempted to clone 3 years in a row. I am getting close (just had one of this year's clones last night). Can't wait to do a direct comparison.

Here are the keys (IMO).

  • Either mash at a high temp or use lactose. Need to keep the FG up a bit. Also, needs that residual sweetness that pumking has.
  • Use very little cinnamon. I think I went with that 0.12oz recommendation from earlier in this thread (or elsewhere).
  • Lotsa vanilla.
  • Lotsa ginger.

I used dry ground ginger (spice rack) and vanilla bean originally. At the end of fermentation, I did a taste test and decided to add more of both.

So I then added a bunch of candied ginger (that I already had), as well as some real vanilla extract.

So I actually spoke with someone at ST last night. He didn't give me specifics but told me that they use an alcohol based spice mixture of Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and cloves. He told me that he's heard of people having success on a smaller scale making a tincture using 151 and their spices. He said it's all added after it ferments out.

I know he's not telling me the WHOLE story because there is certainly vanilla in this beer. But cool that he shared some information.

i spoke with the head brewer last year and my info is quite different, but my clone attempt was horrid.. i believe it was way over spiced. He was VERY VERY VERY reluctant to give any information but never mentioned anything about doing a tincture and he also said add at the last 10 mins of the boil.. i guess take my advice and what lodovico said with a grain of salt or something.. not sure what to believe on this beer they just wont talk much.

Did any of you that added canned pumpkin or canned pumpkin pie filling end up with what literally looks like a pumpkin pie on the top of your fermenter? Mine has been in primary for 10 days so I decided to take a reading. I took off the top and had to poke down through about a half inch of pumpkin sludge to get to the beer.

And I'm talking thick sludge. Not like sediment floating in beer. Sludge. It did not taste like I expected. It's only down to 1.020 but I was shooting for a high OG. I haven't had an infected beer in 4 years of brewing, but I'm wondering what's going on with this or if it's normal for all of the pie can additives to collect at the top like this.

What do you think?
