I use a manifold bottom from How To Brew, inside a 70quart cooler for a Mash Tun, i want to brew this on Wednesday but do not have any rice hulls. Do I risk it or place an order and wait 10 days to brew?

A picture of a pint of the Thunderstruck Pumpkin ale. I brewed it Oct 6th, 2010 and the bottle I just popped (Sept 14, 2011) still tastes fantastic. It's lost a little of it's cinnamony and nutmeggy flavor, but it's still great. I did an all grain 5 gallon batch. I'll post my recipe and process in the next post.

I'm still a little confused on when/how to add the spice tea. I just transferred my attempt at this recipe to the secondary and was thinking I would just add the spice tea to the secondary just before racking to the bottling bucket. Is this the correct way to go about this or do you add it directly to the bottling bucket? Also, everyone says you add it "to taste." What method are ya'll using to sample it? Thanks for the input.

I going to brew the extract version next week (only my 2nd batch). I read through many (many) posts, but I'm still a little confused. I have a 20 qt pot, so have to do a partial boil. I see in previous posts others have done so with good results. Here's my question: How much water do I use to steep the grains? I could steep in a bag in a 5 gal cooler I have (to hold temp better). I'm thinking of steeping in maybe 2 gallons of water, then bring the volume up to 3 1/2 gal for the boil and adding the extract?

Does the original post have all of the improvements (edits) talked about in the 70+ proceeding pages? I would like to make this, and want brew what has been learned from the 4 years of trial and error. Do the rice hulls work? Also, I’m new to beer smith...and have never lownloaded a beer smith file, but could someone post the fully edited beer smith file? Thanks!

Sorry, just a quick offtopic question: Do you have to have a yearly/lifetime membership in order to edit your old posts? I ask because you said you changed the recipes in the first post, but I can't access my older posts to edit.

17 lbs Maris Otter

1 lb Wheat
145 oz Libby's canned pumpkin, baked at 350ºF for an hour

2.25 oz Tettnang at 60 minutes (the whole boil)
1/2 Tbsp Pampered Chef Cinnamon Plus at flameout
S-04 yeast
I trimmed this down to 5 gallons with adjustment to account for my LHBS selling grain by the ounce, so here's what I ended up with:

5 lb 11 oz Maris Otter
1 lb 5 oz Vienna
13 oz Biscuit
1.5 lb Crystal 60L
3 oz Special B
5 oz Flaked Wheat
3/4 oz Tettnang
60 oz canned pumpkin (a bit more than in the above recipe)
2 packs Nottingham

The wort was pretty dark, looks more like a porter or stout, but the hydrometer sample was fantastic! Wondering if I should have backed down to 2 oz Special B. Will transfer to secondary later this evening. I have high hopes for this beer!

Glad I bought extra pumpkin last year. Nothing to be found in stores around here yet.
