Hey motobrewer, which recipe out of the ones listed above did you try? I'm going to boil up a pumpkin brew this week and would like to figure out how to add some ST-like graham cracker character.

ST Imperial Pumking Ale update:
I just transfered to secondary tonight, hit FG of 1.034 corrected for ABV of 9.30% ABV. Tasted pretty damn good so I didn't add anything else at this point. The pulp was no problem except the pulp mass equaled 1-gallon. Next time I will brew with more water to get closer to a 5-gallon batch. It was cloudy going into secondary but am sure it will clear out quite a bit, not sure I can get a clear as original. May do a second secondary to clear up more. They yeast was still active, got measurmized watching it, looked like a bubbling mud pot at Yellowstone. I thought, hmmmmm, I wonder. So I am boiling up two gallons of water and adding two pounds of DME, cooling and adding to the 1 gallon pulp yeast mix, just to see what happens, who knows, maybe I can call it Pumking Guts it turns out drinkable.

Notes: Could't find clone, this is mostly a guess. Orig Target 9% ABV, My Target 8.9 ABV, IBU 22, SRM 8, 1.092 OG, 1.023 FG
Started with 5.5 gal water, ended boil with 5 gallon and a SG of 1.102 @ 84° nc. The wort was very thick because of pumpkin pulp, not practical to strain off so it went into primary, pulp and all, checked SG several times, starts out a 1.110 but settles in at 1.102 nc. Because of loss to pulp, start with 6 gal next time or rinse grains with 1/2 gal water.
Fermentation-Pitched yeast 9/19 @ 2100, bubbling every 45 sec on 9/20 at 1700, every 10 sec @ 2200. 9/21 @ 0800 steady slow, @ 1700 steady fast @ 2230 steady rapid. 9/22 @ 0800 steady rapid, as well as @ 1700 and 2200. 9/23 @0800 steady, @ 1700 steady slow, took SG reading of 1.040 at 72 degrees non-corrected for SG of 1.041, 8.54% ABV. 9/24 every 3 sec @ 0800& 2100. 9/25 ever3 to 8 sec. 9/26 every 12 sec. 9/27 20 sec @ 0800, 24 sec @ 1700. Transfered to secondary @ 1.032 nc at 74 degrees.

Wondering how I will get the pulp out of this, tasted pumpkiny and had an alcohol bite. Pulp was no problem, all had settled to the bottom however the thick mix totaled a gallon, next time, start brewing with more water. Tasted pretty good!

My recipe is very similar to the ones posted here however I threw in a pack of crushed graham crackers in the last 5 min of the boil. Just racked to secondary and going to add a dash of vanilla extract. Will let y'all know how it turns out! Looking at 10% ABV as well. Yowza!

I can't recommend making this ST Imperial Pumking Ale the way I did using pumpkin from a can. I transfered from secondary into a second secondary today and in addition to the ale not being clear, there was over an inch of settled pumpkin in the bottom of the carboy. I racked off as much as I could without bringing in the sludge and probably lost another gallon of ale in addition to the gallon lost in primary. To net it out, the ale tastes good so far but canned pumpkin has resulted in a loss of two gallons of the batch. Since ST's Pumpking Ale is so incredibly clear, I am guessing ST either uses possibly cubed pumpkin or an extract? I can't see how even filtering would make it so clear as the pumpkin particles are so fine. Has anyone used the cubed pumpkin and came out with a clearer result?

this is one of the things you'll see year after year about making pumpkin beers. no matter how or when you do it, if you add pumpkin to wort, you lose a LOT of beer in the longrun and rarely get the flavor you're seeking. commercial breweries have much better filtering techniques and equipment so don't worry about it. just remember to use an extra helping of irish moss or gelatin and hope for the best. plan for longer than normal primary & secondary, and perhaps even a third storage for proper clearing. patience i mean rdwhahb
