what size starters are you guys making out of that wyeast package to ferment this to 9 abv...really just using one package of yeast? This recipe sounds like a winner, just want to make sure i order enough yeast.

I have a stir plate and always use the calculator below to determine what size starter I'm going to use. Alternatively, you could pitch multiple packets of yeast. At 1.089 and 5.5 gallons its showing 333 billion cells needed (ideally). Even with a stir plate and a 1.5L starter I'll need to step it up to achieve 333, for 11 gallons I need to double that.

Please note, my first time around on this beer I made about a 500ml starter without a stir plate and it attenuated as described. Since then, I've been making starters with the stir plate and this beer attenuated to 1.015 (I'll adjust the mash schedule accordingly to keep it a tad sweeter).

MacGruber, are you taking the beer to Pumpkin Chunkin? I actually was hoping to do the same. If I am able to go I'll let you know, maybe we can meet up and try each other's beer.

Well, just finished brewing this. Hit an OG of 1.088, pretty damn happy. Mash at 155. Decided to put some pumpkin in the boil too. 90oz of Libby's, baked in oven first for 90min @ 350 w a teaspoon of pumpkin spice mixed in to camarlize pumpkin. Dumped in with 15 min left in boil with 1lb of brown sugar. Added all the other spices per the OP.

Now it's time to wait.

I'm totally new to home brewing and I had a few questions. Note that I will be making a 5sandwich gallon batch.

How long do you steep the grains in the beginning and at what temperature?

Also, do you boil/steep all five gallons?

Thanks for any and all help.
