Default Bottled my pumpkin ale last night.

Made from northern brewers smashing pumpkin kit plus some baked bumpkin and a bottle of blackstrap. I baked half the blackstrap with the pumpkin and put the other half in at flameout.

Tasted good going into the bottles. Can't wait for Halloween!

Tasted it tonight. Had good carbonation. The blackstrap and spices are just right for me. I feel like it needs a few more weeks in the bottle.

That looks really nice. I am going to have to remember black strap when I am brewing. I can see what that would lend to a pumpkin brew.

I tested a bottle of pumpkin ale we made this weekend from an ale kit and roast pumpkin. I have never opened a beer that blew the clamp of a grolsch style bottle. The flip top clamp flew across the kitchen and half the bottle fountained out. Luckily that was from a one gallon test batch. We are cutting back the priming sugar for the remaining five gallons.

I bet that was quite a surprise! There is a thread on here where one guy grilled his pumpkin. I will most likely do that next year with this recipe.

Not that it couldn't be the priming sugar, but I have had this problem before as well, and it was infection. Bacteria eating the sugars that the yeast can't. Hopefully you fixed the problem.
