Default All-Grain - Joie De Vivre (Fake Imperial Pumpkin) - GOLD medal in State Comp

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Scottish Ale (Wyeast Labs #1728)
Yeast Starter: 2000ml
Batch Size (Gallons): 6 gallons
Original Gravity: 1.090
Final Gravity: 1.029
IBU: 15
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90
Color: 16 SRM
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21 days @ 65
Tasting Notes: Big beer. Bready character balances the spices and warming alcohol.

I made the following beer and was VERY happy with it. Chewy, malty, and spicy. I gave one to my BIL who was down for Christmas, and his first comment was "Pumkin Pie!". There is no pumpkin in it. The spices are very prominent. My plan is to make this again in the summer. I will cut the spices down 25%.

[edit] I made a second batch of this and realized that the spice measurements should have been teaspoons, not ounces. I had recorded ounces in my written recipe, but that just CAN'T be correct... so I'm assuming I made an error, and I'm changing everything to teaspoons. I've edited the recipe above to reflect this. Sorry everyone.

This beer just won GOLD. Best Florida Beer Competition, state's largest homebrew comp. AHA and BJCP sanctified. Yep, I'm proud.

Congrats! Looks like a nice beer, I'd love to make something similar sometime for the fall.

Really interested in this beer. Could we get a little more information regarding what kind of fermentation schedule you used?

Sorry. Just realized that you did list the primary fermentation. So you went 3 weeks and then packaged?

And do you still recommend cutting the spice by 25% even though this won a gold medal? Thanks.

I'm out of town right now, so I don't have all my notes. I'd guess I let this ferment about 3 wks in primary, then bottled. Yes, I would still cut the spices back, especially the cinnamon.

Make SURE you hit your OG on this one or the spices will be too much. If you decide to scale back the gravity, scale the spices too.

I made it in September 26. Bottled October 17 at 2.4 volumes (4.5oz dextrose). It won a medal in February.

I remember it was very good at Christmas.
