I had never had a pumpkin ale before, and was a little nervous about making 5 gallons. Two weeks in bottles now, and I'm already planning the next batch. I followed the recipe exactly, and it worked out very well, I wouldn't change a thing. I can't wait until this is fully conditioned.

It's not just cloudy, but downright YEASTY. It tastes like a starter. This morning I drained off a liter and a half trying to purge the yeast out of the bottom of the keg if that's what it is. Tonight I'll see how it pours.

Here's a pic of it, my dunkle, and my morning coffee mug.

Did anyone else have excessively huge amounts of sediment?

Mine turned out really cloudy. What could have caused this?

I followed the recipe exactly but fermented a little on the warm side. I didn't crash cool like I originally plan so I just racked to the keg. It tastes amazing but is very cloudy.

It is a beautiful food specific pumpkin. The type that when you cut it open a wonderful aroma fills the room. The fermentation is complete. FG is 1.020 with a 6.7ish% abv. The sample is very cloudy even after cold crash. The spice is very prominent in its uncarbed state. I think it will be tasty with a little age and bubbles 

Brewed this up last week. Pulled a sample after 6 days. Looking pretty nice.

I hollowed out a pumpkin, drilled a small hole, and shoved the tap from my 5 gallon cooler mash tun. Filled it up with this pumpkin beer and brought it to a party. I think people were excited it was a pumpkin keg and loved the beer!
