Default Pumpkin Ale Aging Question

I've been getting a bunch of requests from friends for a pumpkin ale, any recommendations on how long it should age? (Extract recipe ideas also welcome).

And now we go AG!

search on this forum for pumpkin ale - you will get lots of info.
the concensus seems to be a couple of months for the spices to blend.
i am brewing mine right now and hope it is ready for thanksgiving.
if not i will call it a spiced christmas ale


simplified signature:
beer, wine, cheese in various stages of production

Well, I know four months is too long. Swapped for a bottle Cheesefood's and by the time I drank it, no pumpkin or spices at all.


Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
