The hydrosample tasted great, i know its going to be awesome, thanks for the recipe.
Finding the libbys was really the hardest part, I went to three grocery stores and only found one can but then found some other organic brand that was straight pumpkin pack so I went with that

Quick question, a little off topic but it came to mind reading this recipe:

Do you need rice hulls if you BIAB?

I would assume not because you simply pull the bag out of the wort but I thought I would ask.

You know, that's a good question... I'm really not sure. Maybe somebody else with more BIAB experience can chime in.

Well, I didn't brew this recipe, but I *did* brew my partial mash pumpkin ale and I didn't use rice hulls. It was BIAB style, and I had no problems with straining or sparging. You may have to work the bag around a bit (not squeezing, just sort of tilting so the liquid has an escape path), but it doesn't take long. It also helps if you have a big colander that you can put the grain bag in to let the extra wort drip out on it's own though, that way you're not standing there holding the bag for very long.

Nice find! It's nearly impossible to get this time of year. I had to settle for the overpriced organic stuff when I brewed a couple weeks ago. This year I'm gonna stock up for next year (or make my own puree to freeze).

Yeah, last year I had a rough time with it but I found the organic stuff at Safeway. Surprisingly, only $3.50 a can.

Just brewed up a batch of this bad boy, subbing 2/3 cup of molasses for the brown sugar. Gravity came in a bit lower, but I can live with a 5% brew. Smelled like pumpkin pie and autumn. I plan on racking it over 2 vanillla beans after it's 3 week primary. Thanks for he recipe Reno. I'm so stoked.

You're quite welcome. Please be sure to take good tasting notes with the molasses sub. I'm interested. Maybe we can even do a bottle-swap in a couple months.

Also, be careful with the vanilla. It can be incredibly strong and I've heard that it can really take away from what makes a pumpkin ale great. Just some food for thought.
