I don't know but after brewing the same recipe every year and with our brewing techniques improving I still wouldn't change the original recipe. But that's just my own humble opinion. I could be biased, though!

I will be brewing the extract version up tonight. But I have some questions. I really don't care for liquid extract and would rather use a dry extract. It's my understanding that light dme is the same as pale lme. Is that true? If not could someone with more experience brewing recommend a dme for the extract version?

Here is what I've come up with after some adjustments. If it appears I'm off base with my ingredients Id appreciate some critiquing, thanks.

6lb 12oz light dme
.5lb pale malt 2 row
.5lb special roast
.5lb weyermann caramunich

5 gallon
1.065 og
1.017 fg
srm 11
75% efficiency
6.4% abv
24.3 ibu

1oz mt.hood or hallertau 60 min
.5oz mt.hood or hallertau 15 min
1.5 tbls mcCormicks pumpkin pie spice @ 5 min boil
5lb pumpkin 60 min boil
1lb brown sugar at beginning of boil.

since your final color is going to be orange-ish - hopefully, i don't think light or pale dme would make a difference. compare the color difference of rolling rock(pale) or bud light (light) as you see it through a pint glass for example. So the final product would be near the same, the question is how dark do you want your orange color? both dme's will brew the same beer, just the color would be diff. (and only slightly at that)

Also, when brewing with DME or LME you can add them later in the boil to get better hop utilization and lighter colors. The longer you cook extracts the darker they seem to get.

I would like to avoid brown or light brown. When I think of a pumpkin ale I think slightly cloudy almost like a bluemoon. And copper orange similar to the skin of a pumpkin. That would be aesthetically pleasing to me. The beer calculator is saying it will turn out copper to red/light brown. I guess I can live with that .

The beer recipe programs aren't always accurate with color. Plus use of pumpkin adds a TON of orange color.

And it'll be cloudy but eventually clear up with long enough time in the cold (keg or bottle)

Well Ive got the pumpking cooling my equipment sanitizing. However all my beer guy had was briess pilsner light malt. i went ahead and bought it. When I recalculated everything with the briess Im now getting 8 srm instead of 12. I went back to the store but he already closed up. My question is should I hold off until tomorrow and see if he has anything else or should I go ahead as planned? Beercalculus says it will turn out gold to copper. It doesnt account for the pumpkin. Any predictions what the color might be with the pumpkin included?

Taste-wise you'll prolly be fine.
