Not sure if I'll get a reply since this thread is so old, but what are your recommendations when it comes to canned pumpkin? I really don't want to go through so much trouble with a real one if possible...

How much canned pumpkin? Do you have to bake the canned pumpkin? Do you need to put is in a grain bag or dump it in, and if you dump it in will there be a big mess when you transfer it to the primary?

just to jump in here, I will post my own recipe for a Pumpkin Rum ale I made a few months ago and just now am enjoying; but to answer your questions, some have just added the pumpkin to the boil right from the can. Me, I used two large cans of pumpkin (58 oz) baked for an hour at 300 with a drizzle of molasses and some pumpkin spice on top. This was added to the boil at 60 minutes. Yes, no matter what you do, it will be a mess; I let it sit on the stuff during primary rather than try and get it out.

I read that some of the sugars in the pumpkin would caramelize and add a bit of depth (like a baked pumpkin pie) and it did come out of the oven with a light brown crust over the top. Since this is my first pumpkin ale, I have no idea if it added anything or not, just seemed like the thing to do.
