I've used the Graham Cracker Extra from Capella on my last years batch. I honestly did not taste it after two months had passed. I bottled on Saturday this years batch and will wait at least four weeks to taste it. Cannondale's recipe is not an exact clone, but it's the closest I've ever gotten to the Pumking. I'm looking for the McCormick's flavoring in my local supermarkets but cannot find it.

i added a tsp of the GC extract, tsp of pumpkin pie spice, and 4 oz of homemade vanilla extract in spiced rum about 10 days ago. bottled yesterday and it tasted great. i tried it before i added those 3 things and it was really good then too, i was trying to look for an overbearing vanilla or graham cracker flavor but couldnt really find it. its definately present tho, but with so many other spices in the recipe, they all do their part and its great. i brewed it for a party on the 22nd of sept, pretty stoked for my friends and family to try it. i can only image it'll get better with a few weeks of bottle conditioning, carbed, and cold. i followed cannondales except it was extract and i dont use a secondary.

I brewed the recipe from post #191 on 8/25 except I substituted 3 cinnamon sticks with 3 tsp ground cinnamon which I think may have been way too much now that I am doing more reading on it.

Anyway, I think I will be adding Vanilla Butter Nut extract instead of the Graham Cracker extract and see how that goes.

Last weekend I brewed the exact recipe from post 191. I re-hydrated the 2 packs of dry-yeast and the fermentation started with in 12-24 hours. About day 3 the fermentation went wild! I have never had to use a blow off tube but this went thing went right through the airlock. I caught it before a complete blow off thank goodness. Its been 6 days and it continues to go nuts bubbling like crazy. I can't imagine brewing this without a secondary fermentation. That's a lot of mess that needs to settle out. I took a few pictures of my fermentation to share. Did others have this same issue?

When you guys racked to secondary, did you rack the pumpkin in the fermenter, or just beer? I've got a thick layer of pumpkin that I'm hoping will shrink. I'm thinking I'll probably cold crash it before racking to secondary (keg) and adding more spices.
