Default Whole Pumpkin Pie in brew

I really want to make a Pumpkin Ale with a real whole pumpkin pie in the brew! I cant find anyone online that has tried it. I mean just throw a whole pie in the wort. Is there maybe an issue with some of the pie ingredients (milk, eggs, etc)? I would have to do additional spices to taste in secondary, I guess, as you couldnt define how much was really in the pie already. Thoughts?

I have no idea, but if you need someone to sample this experiment, I can give you my address to ship a few bottles. I think your biggest hurdle will be figuring out how much fermentable sugars are in the pie and then compensating for that in your recipe. I don't think the milk/eggs will be an issue since it is cooked during the baking of the pie, and the alcohol will prevent other bad things from happening with it (just like Irish Creme). I say give it a go!

Yeah, I'm not sure how the shortening/oils from the pie crust could work out.

What you maybe could do would be to use wax/parchment paper in place of the pie crust? Basically make a pie without a crust, then throw it in the boil.

One thing I always do is add a pound of lactose to my pumpkin ale to give it that milky/creamy flavor/sensation that mimics the texture of the pie, and, of course, the whipped cream.

whichever way you do it be sure to tell us the results!

I'm definitely gonna try it! Working with my LHBS, Brock's, to figure out fermentables. Planning on a Harpoon UFO clone as my base. Look at clones on this site and let me know what you think if you have time. On my phone, so hard to paste links. Thanks for the advise!

I'm planning a Pumpkin beer with DFH Punkin Clone as the base that i'll be adding some graham crackers and lactose to so I think adding a homemade pie would be fine.

No offense, but this sounds like a really terrible idea. I mean, go for it...I'm curious to hear how it goes. But I know if one of my friends asked me, in person, what I thought of this idea, I don't know if I could respond seriously to it.

This is a hilarious idea. I say go for it!

The worst that could happen is it turns out awful and you've wasted the time and ingredients.

would probably cause a mess in the boil for straining.. you could just throw it in the mash, though i wouldn't think that the crust would really impact the profile much at all

I am definitely for real! I am an extract brewer, so no mash. But I brew in an old keg with a strainer filter valve thing (make sense?), in the bottom of the kettle.
