Default All-Grain - Punk'toberfest!

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WLP029 Kolsch
Yeast Starter: No
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.053
Final Gravity: 1.013
IBU: 26.3
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 11.04
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10 @ 68F
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 12 @ 40F
Tasting Notes: Oktoberfest ale with pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice

Grain Bill:
5.5 lbs. German 2-row Pils
4 lbs. German Vienna
1 lbs. German Light Munich
0.5 lbs. Breiss Carabrown 55L
15 oz. Libby's Pumpkin (canned) Dumped right into mash.

Single infusion mash (1.25 qts./lb.) at 154 degrees for 90 minutes.

I used Breiss Carabrown (55L) but in Beertools used British Crystal (55L) for the calculations... Couldn't find Carabrown on Beertools as it is a seasonal release.

Hops:
0.9 oz. Tettnanger (Pellets, 3.70 %AA) boiled 60 min.
0.5 oz. Hallertauer (Pellets, 4.30 %AA) boiled 30 min.
0.5 oz. Hallertauer (Pellets, 4.30 %AA) boiled 15 min.

Spices:
1.5 tbs. Pumpkin Pie Spice (Add with 5 mins left in boil)

Ferment coooool as you can to give the Kolsch yeast a clean, lager character. After fermenting at about 68, I racked and threw it in the fridge for some cold aging. Didn't have a lot of time or patience though, but it tastes awesome.



A big plus is that I made this with a solid base. This Oktoberfest ale recipe is a mix-up of EdWort's/Biermuncher's recipes and techniques. The Carabrown is wonderful. Was hoping it might add graham cracker notes as the package suggests and it does. Great grain!!!

I have failed miserably at making my own spicing schedule for pumpkin beers in the past. But I nailed it this time. Not overpowering, nice and smooth. Do yourself a favor and just use the much-maligned McCormick's Pumpkin Pie Spice. It's easily obtained and it's the perfect blend. It's all I'll use from now on. I added it right at the end of the boil and I didn't need to add any more later.

Will make this every year!!!

I'm all over this! I'm not sure if it's the recipe or the label, love the Misfits (and the recipe looks quite interesting as well)

This looks like a solid recipe, although I would lager this with Wyeast 2308. Cheers!

Ive been lurking on this forum for a while now just never had anything to add so I never created an account. I'm new to brewing and don't quite have the equipment for all grain - is there a way to convert this to a partial mash?
