Default Anybody try the Austin Home Brew pumpkin ale recipe?

Just curious if anybody has bought this ingredient kit?
Austin Homebrew Supply

Also, curious if I should go with DME instead of LME? Any suggestions?

So what did you decide? Are you going to buy the AHS kit? Also, would you just buy canned pumpkin from the supermarket? AHS doesn't post their instructions for each kit online, so you can't tell from their site how much pumpkin you need to add.

Thousands and thousands have bought our pumpkin ale kit.

DME or LME is interchangable. Whatever you are used to.

I have this sitting in my secondary right now. I'll be bottling it next week. I am very excited to try it!

I brewed the extract kit last year. It turned out very good. I used two 29 oz. cans of pumpkin in the boil. I think it would have turned out just as well with one can. I baked the pumpkin in the oven spread out on a cookie sheet at 330F for an hour before adding it to the boil. Pull the trigger on this one - you won't regret it.

I ordered the LME kit on Thursday. Will be here on Wednesday. Would have been here tomorrow if today wasn't a holiday. I can't wait!

I brewed this kit with DME. I used 2 cans of pumkin baked @ 350 for one hour. I steeped the pumkin instead of boiling it. I think it helps keep the trub down while still extracting sugars from the pumkin. I added a bit more spice than what can with the kit. It's getting transferred to secondary this weekend. I'll tell you how it comes out.

I'm going to order this kit today with LME since that is what I've brewed with in my first batch. Do you think this one will require a secondary fermenter? I only have my one fermenting bucket, but will probably order a carboy. Should I go with a 5gal glass carboy as my secondary, or perhaps a better bottle?
