I hear you on that. Cloudy is fine..

I wasn't a big fan fan of the DFH..

The Weyerbacher has a real thick body and just smells like heaven..

Although it does have a semi slick mouth fill, its the most full body pumpkin I have had yet..

The main reason I was wanting to get into HB'ing was a never ending supply of pumpkin ale, but after reading more and more, I see it turning into a lifelong hobby..

And thanks for posting a link when you do.. it will help a lot I'm sure..

Ill pick up a 4 pack then to check it out. I do like pumpkin beers but haven't come across one that's perfect. Which is the reason for the contest I'm holding. One for my viewers and the other is personal between my friend joe and I to see who can make it better. Neither of us has made it before. Should be interesting. Home brewing is addictive and opens a world of expanding your tastes in beer. I love it..my wallet doesn't but I'm glad I got into it. Ill keep you posted when I start.

How funny.. I just got a call from my local brew store..

He called to tell me they got Southern Tier Pumking in!

Wonder if they think I'm an alcoholic?

Gotta say.. I prefer Weyerbacher to Pumking..

While the ST has that Graham cracker taste... the Weyerbacher has more spice and body..

So I'm brewing my pumpkin today. Decided to large cans of Libby's spread out on a baking sheet smothered with brown sugar and molasses topped with graham crackers. Baked that up. Then soaked in at 155 degree for 35 plus min. Then I steeped my grains and continued as normal. Spice mix added at flameout. Secondary will consist of vanilla bean spices and some top shelf bourbon. I really have no clue what this will come out like. I'm treating this like cooking food. Taste as I go and add when needed. Ill videotape my results on my YouTube channel.

Going to try the NB Smashing Pumpkin ale next week, and got the extra grain for the pumpkin mash. The reviews were pretty positive on it, and they had a video tutorial on how to add the pumpkin.
