I do have a small amount of sediment at the bottom of each bottle. Just wondering what your experience was with bottling it. I would like to share this with friends before Halloween.
It will have some carbonation by Halloween, but don't expect it to be fully ready. I had a Scottish ale back in June take 4 weeks before it was carbed and it was for a wedding. I was sweating bullets. I contemplated opening and dropping carb drops in and chose not to cause of the hassle. I let it ride and it worked out for the best. Let this sit and you'll be rewarded. I would venture to say that thanksgiving would be a good point to really test this beer.

Thanks for all the information dudes! It tastes good, it's just flat. I had other higher OG beers that were carbonated after 7 days.(not completely carbonated) I never brewed a pumpkin beer before and was thinking it may take longer to carbonate because the characteristics of the pumpkin playing a part. Anyway, I'm gonna let it chill for a few weeks and see how it develops.

My SWMBO told me to order enough ingredients to make this again. She said it was the best beer I have made so far. She must have liked it, I think I only got about 5 or 6 pints out of the keg. She drank the rest.

I have 5g. of this in the keg at just over 4 weeks total age (2 primary, 2 in keg) and it's really come around. A great beer, sweet, some squashy pumpkiny quality, and the spice of pumpkin pie. Having a Halloween party this Saturday and I think this will be a hit.

To those of you that steep the pumpkin puree before the mash, what are you putting the pumpkin in? I may do this the next time I brew this because the BIAB grain bag was super heavy with the pumpkin in there with the grains.

When I did mine, I threw the pumpkin in disposable hop bags and steeped them in the water as I heated my mash and sparge water. Turned out great!

I'm mashing my first attempt at this brew as I type. Not going to be ready for Halloween but should be keg'd and carb'd by Thanksgiving. Thanks for the recipe!
