This beer turned out really well. The only thing I might change would be to add another can or two of pumpkin. Caramelizing the pumpkin reduces the volume quite a bit.
I just bought some supplies to make this one, hopefully it turns out as good as you say:mug::mug:
just pm'd you about additional details
How did this beer turn out??? It sounds Like a really fun one to brew!
Any feedback on how this turned out???
So you added the pumpkin to the boil at 70 min? I wonder could you just rack ontop of the pumpkin, or does boiling it infuse more pumpkin flavor?
You could try racking it on top, only one way to see what happens if you do :drunk:
I am planning on making this again today, we'll see how many more cans of pumpkin I add. I'll update this post again after I brew.
I brewed this today. I used 3 large cans of Libby's 100% Pure Pumpkin:
LIBBY'S Nutriton - NESTLE VeryBestBaking.com
Each can was 1 lb 13 oz (29 oz).
My local HB shop was out of Crystal, so I substituted Mt. Hood per their recommendation.
I'll let you know my tasting thoughts once the keg is tapped.
I'm wanting to do a similar recipe, yet none of my local grocery stores carry pumpkin in a can right now (they all say its out of season and supply is too low to carry it).
Any substitutes for the pumpkin? Have any of you tried pumpkin pie spice instead?
