This! Brewed this with a friend and it was overspiced. I said give it time, he said, "I give it to you." Change his mind in a month, more for me!

Yup. Just had my first full pint yesterday. It's about 2 weeks from perfection.

Well I learned an important lesson...always weight your ingredients unless you weight and bag yourself! I realized the grain bill was low during the fly sparge but obviously I was already a bit late, so I just finished it up.

OG as 1.053 (my last batch came in at 1.081) but I neglected 3-4 lbs of base malt. The final wort smelled awesome so I'm just going to call this one Drunkin Punkin Lite!
Well fermentation is going great!

I brewed this again Saturday (3rd time) and had an interesting brew session. First, I wasn't paying attention to how much pre-boil volume I had in my pot and sparged a little (even though I BIAB) extra water through the grain. I noticed I had about 8¼ gallons of wort. No biggie, I decided to boil an extra 30 minutes to bring the wort volume down. Let the wort boil 30 minutes then started my 60 minute hop addition and brown sugar and continued on. Boil complete, cooled to pitching temp, checked volume, only 5 gallons in my pot and the OG was 1.082, yikes. Siphoned into the fermenter only 4½ gallons of wort. I didn't panic just went inside and boiled another gallon of water. I needed some anyway to rehydrate the yeast. I added ¾ gallon of water to the fermentor to give me 5¼ gallons and I took another hydrometer reading. Now the OG is 1.074, much better, poured in the yeast and let it rip.

Thanks alot Reno_Envy you #*(&$#(*^($&#(&$!
Thanks to you I am taking up home brewing
All joking aside. I have never brewed an ounce of beer. But a good friend made your recipe (some minor change I believe due to ingredients on hand) and I thought it was the best Pumpkin beer I have had (tried about 5 different commercial varieties). So I have spent the past 5 or 6 weeks weeks reading all about making home brew and have decided to take the plunge. I will be doing all grain with the BIAB (beer in a bag) method and your recipe will be my first attempt.
It will take another week or 2 to gather everything I need and then it is brew time! I just hope I can wait long enough for the beer to mature before I start drinking it all

Ha! I'm sorry and you're welcome at the same time, then. I wish you luck. If you have any questions about the beer that isn't covered in this thread or any general brewing questions please ask.
