I've got mine in primary now, and earlier hydrometer samples are yielding a winner!

It's been sitting in primary for about 3 weeks, then it'll off to the keg for some more aging. I plan on breaking it out for the SWMBO's birthday at the end of September.

I bought the extract version and am thinking of brewing it tonight. did anyone who did brew it add pumpkin, either canned or cut up chunks? The instructions state the addition of actual pumpkin is optional.

I used canned pumpkin, but be prepared to lose a lot of beer if you do. I think I lost nearly a gallon.

Because you put it in the boil, where it appears to evaporate and mix in with the wort, then once in the fermenter magically reappears as 4 to 6 inches of trub.
I think it is worth it because it gives a great flavor. I think I used 4 15oz. cans, mabey you could get away with using 2.

If you're doing all grain, you can mash the pumpkin.
