I heard about that taste test. I considered not using pumpkin at all, but ended up using just 1lb--something just sounds better about a pumpkin ale when you can say it was brewed with real pumpkin.

Mash that pumpkin. I just did a Pumpkin ale and used baking/pie pumpkins, quartered them, baked them at 300 for an hour, skinned and mashed em up and put them in my mash. I plan to add the spices in secondary. We'll see how it does.

Yeppers, canned fresh, it doesn't matter. Spread it out in cookie sheet, roast at 350 for 1 hour, let cool then throw right into the mash!
Add 1 lb of flaked wheat and you will get a creamy, pumpkin pie mouth feel, second to none!
