That's what I plan on doing.

Default Thanks


This will be my next batch.. I am going to have to scale down the extract recipe to 5 gallons, unless someone else has done that and can post it.

Brewed the 6 gallon extract batch today and man o man did that gravity sample taste good!! For the smells of fall alone at the end of summer this beer is worth brewing. I added the baked canned pumpkin right into the 60 min boil with no bag and dumped all of it into the primary. Pitched safale s-04 dry (first time sprinkling) onto 63 degree wort. This is my first time with this yeast, figure I'll let it rise to 68 on it's own and then hold there for 4 days or so, then let it rise to room temp to clean up.

So far Yuri, one hell of a recipe.

Multiply all ingredients x 5/6.

I know the math I was actually just too lazy to do that, thanks though. I'll be brewing this in two weeks

Recipe current as of 14 Aug 2011
This recipe has been changed to reflect improvements over the years.
The final volume should be 6 gallons, not 5 as the data above indicates.
The IBUs should be 12-14, not 32.1 as the data above indicates.

6.25 lbs light DME
1 lbs Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L
8.0 oz Biscuit Malt
4.0 oz Wheat, Flaked
60.00 oz Pumpkin, Canned (Boil 60.0 min)

.75 oz Goldings (5.0% AA 60.0 min) 13 IBU

0.25 tsp Irish Moss (Boil 10.0 min) or one Whirlfloc tablet

Yeast - English Ale (White Labs #WLP002) or Fermentis S-04

Spread the pumpkin on a cookie sheet and bake for 20-30 minutes at 350 degrees F before adding to the brew.

Steep the grains for 20-30 minutes at about 155°F.

During clearing stage, add a spice tea of 1 tsp "Pumpkin Pie Spice" or Pampered Chef "Cinnamon Plus." Steep spices in 1 cup hot water for 10-15 minutes, cool then add. Consider adding the spice tea a little at a time to achieve the desired flavor profile.

There will be several inches of trub almost regardless of how you try to contain the pumpkin. Your yield may be slightly less than 5 gallons.
This is for a full boil, correct? I want to make sure I poout the right amount of hops.

just brewed the extract version a few days ago. i have a five gallon carboy and one gallon carboy so i racked into both (pitching roughly a fifth of the yeast into the one gallon carboy). both seem to be going well, with the five gallon having slightly more airlock activity. two questions:

i wasn't planning to rack into a secondary -- was just going to leave each carboy alone for about three weeks. is that a bad idea? (i think this was addressed earlier in the thread and the consensus was that it's fine.)

and when it comes time to bottle, should i rack the two carboys into the same bottling bucket? or should i keep them separate?

I would taste them first to make sure neither is infected or otherwise off, but I would personally blend the two.
