Its about that time of year again! I brewed another 5 gallon batch of this yesterday so it will be ready for Oktoberfest. I can't find any pumpkins yet so I put two pounds of pumpkin puree in the boil in a steeping bag.

I don't know man, might not be enough pumpkin... I used a lot more, but I was going for a HIGH gravity and needed to hide the alcohol... (It worked out well by the way )

I brewed this recipe twice last year and it turned out really well. I actually did another 5 gallons last night so I have 10 gallons fermenting.

I did a 5 gallon batch with a coffee stout and 2 large cans pumpkin pie mix. Pumpkin didn't come through. Also I carbed with brown sugar and the. Eer came out a little flat :/. Still tasty though

I am getting ready to brew this again this weekend and am very excited. I am going to basically use the same recipe as last year but cut the IBUs, increase the roasted pumpkin/squash (I think the squash gives more flavor), and increase the spices. I should plan on making two batches: one for the kegerator and one for bottling and bringing to people/gifting.

Here's another question on this. What kind of FG are you guys hitting? I want this beer to be a dessert beer, but I don't want the mouthfeel and sweetness to be cloying. My hopville recipe states the FG will be 1.018, but I feel like that will be pretty high. Also, SWMBO won't drink it if it is too sweet. Any advise?

Well, I feel silly being the person to post the last three responses . . .

Anyway, how long you guys letting this one condition? I left it in primary for 15 days, moved to secondary on Sept 27th for 24 days, and not in the keg since October 21st. I know patience is a virtue, but I wanna drink this puppy.

I think you will be fine. I primary, three weeks, no secondary, then begin drinking after 3 weeks in the bottle. I find it gets better (duh) after an extra month in the bottle, but is still good when young.
