I have heard it's best, and cleanest, to mash the pumpkin. Personally, the one time I tried it,
I steeped it in a mesh bag with the crystal. Didn't lose much extra to the trub that way, and
even then ...

I would have to disagree with most of the advice given on this thread. When I found out that my
wife (gf at the time) didnít like beer (Shocked!) I decided to take an unorthodox approach to

Agreed with a bunch of prior posters, it's all preference. Crack a bottle after a few weeks and
see how it goes. If it's still too green and you don't like the taste, let it sit a few more

For future batches, I'd suck it up and buy a growler, no matter how many bottles you have. Its

FWIW, I just bottled a Punkelweizen very similar to the above (strangely similar, considering I

I usually don't care what other people like or want to drink. Want BMC? Fine by me. I still
drink them when there's limited selection. Am I having a good time doing whatever I'm doing?
that's what I t...

I think part of it is people are just creatures of habit. Take coffee for example. My

because they don't know S...
