Okay, but i have this overwhelming urge to throw some pumpkin and spices in it! It might take a couple tries to get it right, but I really want to do it....

Update for everyone still following this: I added 60 oz. of canned pumpkin (60 min. boil) and 1 tbs pumpkin pie spice (2-5 min boil). The OG ended up as 1.064, and the FG ended up as 1.016. Strong pumpkin taste (haven't bottle conditioned yet, will do so for 1 month starting today), but not overpowering of the grains. Very enjoyable to me, although my favorite part of autumn is tasting all the new pumpkin beers...I just love them. Just thought I'd let everyone know what ended up happening.

Thanks for the update! I never got around to brewing a stout. I decided on a Red Ale instead. I'm glad it worked out for you. Did the pumpkin pie spice add much to the final product, or was it mostly the pumpkin flavor that came through?

It'll be cool to see what happens after some bottle conditioning. Will the pumpkin fade, or become enhanced? Only time will tell. Make sure to post again at conditioning.

Update after bottle conditioning: conditioning mellowed everything out perfectly. Very full bodied, with pumpkin taste that definitely doesn't cover up the grains or overwhelm the senses. Good thick pale brown head with strong porter and slight pumpkin smell. I wouldn't change the amount of pumpkin or spice that I added, but the pumpkin really owns over the spices. Thanks again for the help everyone.

Awesome. Most of the pumpkin-type beers I've tried taste more like spice than pumpkin, and I always wish it was the other way around. Your's sounds like a winner.
