Default Extract - Roasted Pumpkin SEED Seasonal Ale

Recipe Type: Extract
Yeast: WL English Ale
Yeast Starter: why not
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: ....ok
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: Not important
Final Gravity: Low
IBU: incalculable
Boiling Time (Minutes): 30
Color: light
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 days @68
Additional Fermentation: If desired
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 days @68
Tasting Notes: Delicious roasty flavor of pumpkin seeds. Bitterness from hops and slightly burnt see

Stage 1

3 lbs light DME

1/2 oz bullion hops for 30 min.(additional bitterness comes from the roasted seeds, I would not exceed 1/2 oz for 30)

WL English Ale yeast

After transfer to secondary (all fermentation finished)

3 cups raw pumpkin seeds
1 tbsp butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Mix all and place on a cookie sheet.(use foil for less clean-up)
Roast at 450F for 20 minutes or so, until a seed or 2 are looking almost burnt.


I dumped the whole thing immediately into the secondary. By then infection is highly unlikely, but I figured piping hot was safer than letting it sit around.

There should be a small secondary fermentation.

You will want to filter with a hop bag.

Anal clarifying nerds will want to tertiary.(another secondary)



Trully unique. I got great reviews from some serious snobs.

Default Clarification


Is this really for a 5 gal batch or just a 2.5 gal batch? I make the 2.5 gal batches and the 3lbs of DME is typical of what I use. I thought that 5 gal usually use 6-7lbs of DME.

Thanks! BTW- I have a pumpkin farm around the corner and pumpkins will be available by labor day! whoo hoo!

I really did 5 gallons. It did not have a ton af alcohol, but it tastes great.

Definitely up it if you want!

I am really contemplating more of a porter or stout for the pumpkin seeds this year. It could have taken a richer beer, I was just experimenting, and wanted to really taste the pumpkin seed contribution flavor wise.

Definitely omitted butter and upped the DME for the subsequent brewing.

I also added a little crystal 60. I will post the new version.

I did a pumpkin beer last October with a pumpkin mash and then once I racked it to the keg I added pumpkin seeds. I will taste it this October for Halloween, it's been a year on the seeds.

WOW!! This brew was tasty because of the seeds, but the roasty character faded after a month or so.

A longer time on the seeds would be good.

This is NOT a pumpkin beer though.
