I did a simple test batch and came out nice and pumpkinny. Had five gallons fermented with nothing added and racked half at 1.02 into a 2.5 gallon carboy on top of a can of Libby's pumpkin with some assorted mulling spices and let it sit for another 2 weeks and it sure turned out pretty darn good for my first stab at it. And it's about as easy as can be.

I just bottled a pumpkin ale that I have high hopes for.

I dumped 5 gallons of Walmart apple juice on the yeast cake and added a bit more pumpkin pie spice and 1 1/2 lbs corn sugar for og of 1.06. We'll see what happens.

I have 8 carboys, 8 cornies, 5-1 gal jugs, 200 wine bottles, 10 cases of beer bottles and a nice assortment of flip tops....My goal is to keep them at least 50% occupied

My first cider was a disaster. Too many spices in primary fermentation. My next attempt, I will start with apple juice and brown suger. After fermentation I will split the batch in two and add mulling spices to one and mulling spices plus pumpkin and lactose to the other.
