    So I brewed a pumpkin ale back on September 8th (now 17 days ago). I put the pumpkin in for all
    60 minutes of the boil, in a fine mesh nylon bag. I used the canned stuff too (Libby's 100%

    That's what I intend to do with my next batch. I'm thinking a spiced cyser tho. What was your

    Thank you for answering a question I had planned to ask elsewhere :)No problem. I also meant to
    say you can also (and should) prime your bottling bucket/bottles with honey. 1.5 oz honey per
    gallon to ...
