So I recently made a pumpkin ale, I did it as an extract beer, 5 gal batch. I cleaned, cooked, pureed, and added rice hulls to one pie pumpkin and added it 30 min into my boil. Trouble is Ive never cooked a fresh pumpkin before and didn't realize I had to separate the pumpkin meat from the outside skin. So the outside skin was blended up with the pumpkin meat (I could see some of the skin as small orange pieces) and added to my beer. Im not worried about any chunks, most were strained out, others will settle out, Im just worried if the pumpkin skin will have added off flavors to my beer during the 30 min boil.
Any one had any experience with this?
Thanks for your help.
