FG of 1.075 right at 2 gallons. I'd already pitched the yeast, so couldn't add water and recheck. I added a half gallon of water to wort. Hoping that doesn't bring it below 1.065. I always screw something up! Will still be decent I hope.

Nice! It's that time of year when everybody is brewing pumpkin ales. Thanks for taking an interest in mine!

And regardless of OG/FG, amount of spice, etc., I always give this brew 6-8 weeks in the keg/bottles before having the first one. It seems like a while but it really is worth it.

Has anyone had had any success baking the pumpkin the night before and leaving it out to cool overnight? Looking for a time saver! Thanks for the help

Not sure when you brew or if your oven has a timer, but I put mine in the oven at bed time and have it start at around seven AM to get a head start. I do the same thing when using oats in a nut brown. I also will pour my strike water the night before so I can just wake up and turn on the burner to get started in the morning.
