Jack O Lantern Juice!! Who likes pumpkin ale? Who loves tasting fall? This guy! Fall is my favorite time of year and this is one reason why. A lot of pumpkin ales come out way too pumpkin-y and way too sweet. This one has the perfect balance of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, 3 hops, and other assorted spices. My buddy who gave me this recipe has won numerous awards with it and asked me not to disclose the whole recipe in completion. Good news is I can still offer it in a kit for us all to enjoy! I am going to package hops and spices together in three easy to add bags of goodness. I did however spice the name up a bit as he calls it something way lamer. As always, this is one that I have brewed many times and I think you will love it!
Both recipes use either Safeale 05 or Wyeast 1056 American Ale. Best fermented for 2-4 weeks.
Available in an all grain or extract version, both come in right around 5.25% ABV.
You still have plenty of time to brew this and have it ready before Halloween. It is also a nice brew to have on tap all fall and winter long!
