Is a tsp of the Graham cracker extract really enough for 5 gallons of brew?

Yes. I added it going to secondary and it was very noticeable. I would do that then add a bit more at bottling if you see fit, but dont do more. It is potent.

I put 3 drops into about 12 ounces of my pumpkin beer from last year and it was VERY noticeable. That graham cracker flavor is strong.

Trying this beer for first time this season as we speak. It's delicious! After reading this entire thread, I definitely get what everyone was struggling to place with the aroma/flavor in this. Something sweet/vanilla/buttery. It's what really makes pumking different from other pumpkin beers (that and lack of cinnamon). Sounds like the consensus is the graham flavor extract-- looks like I'll be taking advantage of the current $2 shipping sale from Capella! Thanks for the clone attempt and happy pumpkin ale season!
