If you used T-shirt material to make a bag it wouldn't leak out any but you'd definitely get some sediment if you used anything looser.

Thanks for the info. I've now ruled out using a grain bag! Probably going to go the old T-shirt route and deal with whatever sediment results.

I took a taste of it today and it's wonderful so far. It is still pretty sweet though; we'll see how it tastes when the gravity gets a little lower. Today it was 1.040.

You could easily cut a pumpkin into pieces and roast it until it's just beginning to get soft then put it in either a mesh bag or cheesecloth. Either or those will maintain it without as much sediment as you would get from canned purée.

Oh my gosh I have an empty gallon carboy, think I will have to use it for this recipe.
I do have 3 other batches going.

There's always room for one more batch!

Default My pumpkin cider

is in the secondary, tasted good but no spice flavor.

Added a couple of tsp. of pie spice inside a nylon bag.

Will try in a few days and if OK I will clarify w/ Polyclar or
SuperKleer crash cool and keg.

Ours came out great! It was smooth with a nice pumpkin and spice flavor to it. It had a thicker mouthfeel than most ciders and retained head like a beer. We had a party last night and everyone loved it.

I just started a second batch:

1 large pumpkin
1 large banana
1/2 cup oatmeal
2 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp mace
1 tbsp vanilla extract
10 whole cloves
4 gallons apple juice (1 gallon Musselman's Cider, 1 gallon Mott's and 2 gallons Tree Top)
Repitched Safbrew WB-06 from a previous batch of Hefeweizen. It had some boiled Hallertau hop residue in it.

I chopped up the pumpkin and boiled it with the banana, oatmeal and spices for an hour. Strained it, added apple juice and pitched the yeast. I'll give it a month in primary, prime and bottle carb for one week.

Forgot to ask, was it clear or cloudy?
