After 3 weeks they were already tasting fantastic in the bottles. I'm at about 6 weeks from bottling and it is still getting better. I'm quite surprised how smooth it is at 9% ABV after such a short time.

If I wanted to try this as a five gallon batch, is it as simple as cutting the recipe in half?
Would you compare this to Souther Tier Pumking?

yes, just cut the recipe/spice additions in half. also, it started out as a Pumking clone, but didn't really achieve that 'cake' like flavor of Pumking, it's more of a 'Pie' flavor.

at any rate, i built the recipe from the Pumking malts/hops so in that respect it's close.

I'm a huge Pumking fan! I'm so excited to try this!

I noticed you opted not to go with the canned pumpkin as mentioned on the bottle. Do you think that could help add to the "cake" texture of the beer?

Also, can anyone help me out with converting this to extract?

Cheers!

Pumking is one of my favorite beers. Looks like you did a great job making your own Imperial Pumpkin Ale. Very nice. When you add those spices at bottling, don't you get that into your bottles? Or does in just sink to the bottom of your bottling bucket?

not sure on the conversion. i'd probably go with a bunch of Pale Extract and then some Crystal 20 for color/flavor.

i'm thinking they sunk and/or dissolved because there definitely isn't any floating around the glass or anything.

Fantastic! I'm excited to try this out. What is the benefit of having it sit longer in the primary vs. the secondary? Just curious because I've more often seen it the other way around.
redXstripe, I have been an extract brewer for a while and just discovered how to become an all grain brewer for less than $100. Search "cooler MLT" on here
If you don't feel like doing that right now, download the free trial of http://beersmith.com/ it'll convert it for you.
