What did you do with corn & pumpkins. Put them in the boil???

First off thanks for all the feedback. Secondly who the fukc makes vegan candy corn. I didn't think it could get any worse....

I need to serve this brew 10/24 so I have almost 3 months. Planning on brewing this weekend or next. I talked to the girl I'm brewing this for. She would like to stay on the lighter side of things with a medium to lower hopped brew. The belgian would fit this category but would a belgian strong take longer than 10/24 to mellow and get good? Keep the good advice coming.....thanks again

Yep, I put them in a strainer and sat that in the boil till they dissolved. No flavor was found but it probably boosted the alcohol a bit.

What style did you brew? These folks aren't good beer drinkers. I asked her what her family members liked...one likes Amstel Light, most of the family are Miller or Bud Light drinkers and one Heineken drinker.

I think that you should start early for next year and do a candy corn wine or mead to follow up this year's beer.

That's EXACTLY what I would do. I bet it wouldn't be all that bad.

How long would you think it would take a strong to sit and get good? Start to finish.....

Let me rephrase......drinkable enough so that non-brewers would enjoy it.

I'd go the other way. I'd go something like a cream ale. It would be done in a month, no problem. It is light and you could make it sweet. I don't think belgian yeast would go well, and I don't think that you need to hop this beer at all. Light, sweet, and simple.
