I brewed this using 14 lbs of Maris Otter, and WLP007, and otherwise keeping the recipe the same. I went through it pretty fast; this can definitely be brewed as a double pumpkin ale.

This beer is really delicious. I brewed this back on 8/31, took the day off. I remember the brewday like it was yesterday, sticky mess but it turned out great. I used safale US-05 and mashed at 154 to give it a thicker mouth. 2.5 months later the spices have mellowed and allowed the beer/malt to shine through and I'm getting some of the pumpkin puree now. This is going to be a huge hit next week at thanksgiving!

Trying it now and it is nice! I definitely taste the toasted MO. A touch strong. I did, in remembering, toast the grains already crushed. Will that mellow after a bit more aging?

I toast my grains whole and then allow them to mellow over 2 weeks in a brown paper bag. I'm not too sure that crushing the grain first was a good idea for the fact that I believe allowing the kernel to toast effects the enzymes more dramatically I could be off with that though. As far as mellowing time heals MOST wounds I would let her sit awhile and periodically taste.

An update on mine: I have two hydrometers. One was reading 4 points higher than the other one. I tested them in distilled water, and one of them was still high. So I threw it in the trash as I have a good one that reads spot on now. My final gravity hit 1.014 and it is going in kegs tonight!

This stuff is good. I accidentally used 8fl oz, thinking I'd double the amount of molasses... Turns out 8fl oz is about .75# so I tripled it instead! Still really good, just much ore decadent than the last time, a true desert beer. It finished at 1.020.

Made this back in October to be ready for Thanksgiving. The brew day was a bit touch and go with a sticky mash, but it turned out great - a major hit!

Thank you, King Brian!
