Yeah, I took my batch to my next door neighbor's Black Friday party last year. Big mistake. Had to run back home 3 times to refill the growler.

Just brewed this a few days ago smells stellar hit a good OG and is fermenting great I'm wondering if anyone as used gelatin as a finning agent I used a wirlfloc tab during boil to help but was wondering about the gelatin and if anyone has used it how should I go about it this is my third batch I've made but have been studying the art of brewing for about a year before I brewed my first batch any input would be appreciated

Cheers

I did not use gelatin, just whirlfloc and mine is pretty darn clear. I brewed on august 1st and it was clear by early october after being kegged for a month.

Just finished brewing my Punk'n! Used this recipe as a base but mashed with 4x 15oz cans of Libby's pumpkin and then added about albs of fresh pumpkin to the boil. Built the recipe in Beersmith and hit the estimated OG dead on!! i'll definitely post updates soon.

I did use gelatin in mine. Only for 24 hrs (would have gone 48, but only had 24 before I needed to bottle)... Used this site for guidance:
http://www.bertusbrewery.com/2012/06...h-gelatin.html

I just bought gelatin from my LHBS (AHS, in my case), and used an amount per the directions. It visibly helped clear it up!

I planned on bottling today after 3 weeks in primary, but when I opened the bucket I still had quite a bit of yeast sitting on top of the beer. Gravity reading was 1.016; I was expecting it be a few points lower. I fermented at 62F with US-05 in my basement which is a little cooler than I would have liked, but without temperature control there isn't much I can do. The sample tasted like pumpkin beer and SWMBO seemed to really enjoy it so that's a positive. I brought it upstairs to warm up a bit and will take another reading in a couple days. I'm hoping the yeast will drop some more and that the gravity will drop a few more points as well. I've never used US-05 so not sure what to expect. Any thoughts?

Actually 1.016 is a great FG for this brew. Check it again at the four week mark, but I'd guess it's done.

As for the floating yeast, that just happens sometimes. It might drop weeks from now or quicker if you cold crash but it's really not necessary. Just leave the yeast rafts behind when you rack.

Good to know. The sample had a nice malty sweetness to it that balanced nicely with the bitterness. I've never been a fan of pumpkin beers, but this just might be the best tasting one I've come across. Looking forward to getting this bottled. Thanks again.

Not sure if I just failed at this recipe or my beer is green or what.

It just doesnt have much flavor, and virtually no aroma.
I mostly hit all my numbers (FG was a bit low), the mash and boil smelled great.
I am 30 days in bottle and crashed a 6 pack for about 9 days and its just not that good.

Wonder what it could be in my case? Its the first of about 9 HBT recipes that ive done and not had a wonderful experience.
