I've suggested to others to use 7 pounds of light DME in place of the 2 row and the Munich. You can then steep the Cristal and keep everything else the same.

This would be a good PM

5 lbs of amber or light DME
2 lbs. Munich (mashed)
0.5 lbs crystal 40

spices the same. That would be about a 5.5 ABV for 5 gallons. Do 4 lbs of DME to get a 4.6 ABV. You could get the munich flavor out of it this way since it is a PM.

Rich,

Where did you get the canned pumpkin from? I looked at the grocery store but I couldn't seem to find it. Does it come in chunks or is it more of a mush like the pie filling?

Thank you both for the suggestions on the PM; I appreciate it.

I just started doing PM and I absolutely love 'em!

I purchased 2 large cans of pumpkin. I think it was Libby or something like that. The stuff is like apple sauce when you pour it out.

So no mashing the pumpkin? I keep hearing people say both "you have to mash it because of the starches" or "just boil it because there isnt much starch in pumpkin". Who do I believe?!?

My understanding is fresh = mash, canned = boil

ok, i have no idea why that would matter, but ill go with it. 90min boil on the canned stuff? I think I'll just do 60 so that I can get as much into the fermenter as possible.

The stuff in the cans is just fresh mushed up.

Guess that makes sense, I had heard it was cooked up when it was canned.

I just found a site that says this:

THE STARCH CONTENT OF FOODS expressed as g/100g of food

Pumpkin (raw) 0.3
(boiled in salted water) 0.1

Comparatively:
Sweet potato (raw) 15.6
(boiled in salted water) 8.9

So, fwiw, I'm going to put it in the boil.
