When I brewed mine, for some reason my OG was really low...I don't know if my hydrometer just isn't calibrated, but it showed 1.037... After fermentation I was at a FG of 1.001. Bottled just over 2 weeks ago with 4.5 oz of dextrose.. I used 2 packages is US05 and I think it came out just fine..It's probably going to be a little dry because of the low OG but so far it tastes a lot better than the way to sour one I made last year..

Here's the first bottle I opened of this years batch! I think it turned out pretty damn good, and a hell of a lot better than my batch last year! THANKS Reno! This ones ready just in the nick of time for thanksgiving. The only thing I changed from the OP was I substituted Northern Brewer for the last hop addition.

This beer really isn't itself at all until about 4+ weeks.

Just cracked my first bottle after two and a half weeks. Very good, taking some for Thanksgiving tomorrow but I'm excited to see how much better it gets in the next few weeks!! Will brew again for sure.

So my FG is finishing a little high (1.025), but my OG was also a little high (1.071). Since my ABV is a little higher than expected, I was thinking about adding water to the fermenter to dry it out a bit.

Does anybody have any experience with this?

Want to brew a Southern Teir Pumpking clone for my family to celebrate my upcoming granddaughters birth.

Found Reno's Pumkin extract recipe and Austin Home Brew Supply clone. AHS clone is so new can't find review when I search forum or AHBS site.

Does anyone have experience with this kit or Pumkin recipe that allows them to help me choose the best Southern Teir Pumking clone to brew.

Thanks for the recipe Reno.

Thanks all
