After two days the airlock bubbling has slowed down to every ten seconds or so. Gonna let it sit in the fermenter till the weekend and check the gravity Saturday when I get a new hydrometer. See what it's at and rack it to a secondary.

Started with OG of 1.065 after one week it's at 1.014. I racked to a secondary because there was about 2 inches of trub and yeast on the bottom and I want to clear it up a bit. The hydro sample had a nice pumpkin flavor with a hint of spice, not bad at all.

Since I am leaving town for the week to do some training for work I decided to pop one to see how the carbonation is coming.

No problem. Hope you like it. They need a few more days for carb to finish, right now it's a little light. Has a nice flavor with a little bit of a hop bitterness to the finish. Plan to try to keep some to age but I have some friends who already want some.

Did you find all the ingredients at your LBHS or did you order online? I'm assuming you put all the malts in at the start of your boil? What was your FG?

The only things I got outside my LHBS was the canned pumpkin and the brown sugar. I steeped the grains for 45 minutes. And added 2 lbs of the LME at the beginning of boil and the rest 10 minutes before flame out. My OG was 1.064 and
FG was 1.014.

Any reason I couldn't substitute DME for the LME?

Not at all. Just need to use less DME by weight then LME.

Only thing I might do differently next time is to add some spice when I rack to secondary.
