    Have had a chance to empty some kegs of this, and it has been well received pretty much
    universally. It's the pumpkin beer you can actually drink multiple pints of!My version took
    first place at Hopto...

    I kegged it yesterday after 18 days in the fermenter. First 2 weeks at 65 degrees, then dropped
    to high 30's. Added 1 teaspoon of the spice mixture to one keg of the East Coast Ale version
    and one keg...

    Hey Gitmoe - did you end up using the pie spice in the keg as called for in the recipe? If so,
    what do you think of the level of spice now?Just wondering as I will be kegging mine within the
    next week...

    I have a one barrel system, but usually get around 28 gals final product. A standard gravity
    IPA (1.065+/-) gets around 48 oz in the boil (including 16 oz + in the hopback), plus another
    10 oz +/- dry...

    I don't have experience with session Black IPA's, but I do w/ regular IPA's. I have always
    loved the commercial and homebrewed session ipa's but find they are sometimes rather thin in
    body and a littl...

    Not sure why the OP worded it that way.As written in Zymurgy it was Honey/Maple syrup "End of
    Boil", Spices at "knockout"I put all three things in the boil as soon as I cut the flame,
    stirred it reall...

    The pumpkin goes in the mash. The honey and maple syrup go in at the end of boil. (along with
    the spices.)I made 25 gals of this yesterday, pretty much exactly per the recipe (just
    doubled). Split the...

    Thanks for the tips, RC.I am gonna try the mash schedule per the author - with the protein
    rest. Hopefully that will help out with the lauter.I had considered adding the honey/maple
    syrup post ferment...

    Did you ever brew this? I am planning on brewing it next Sunday. Was wondering what you thought
    of it!
