FYI-If you don't have allspice just make your own by mixing 1/2 t. cinnamon, 1/4 t. nutmeg, and a 1/4 t. cloves. Or you can use an equal amount of all 3 depending on your liking.

Fwiw I brew this in mid August as it allows all the spices and malt/ pumpkin to mingle together nicely. I also allow this to sit in primary for appx 6 weeks as well. After it hits that sweet spot weesm it will be one of the best pumpkin ales you will ever have.

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!

Weesm, pretty cool! How was the taste in the pumpkin? Was it any different than off your regular tap? (keg) Did the pumpkin tap leak at all?

Thanks! It tasted about the same in the pumpkin. It actually went flat pretty quick, so it tasted flat... When I drilled the hole for the tap I intentionally made it smaller and was able to screw the tap in. I tested it with water first and no leaks. It did absorb a ton of the water so that's something to think about. I'm not sure if it helped me by not absorbing a ton of beer instead. Or it made the beer watery...
