Posted in thread: Pumpkin Pale Ale recipe -- does it look good? on 09-13-2012 at 06:26 AM
Your recipe overall looks fine. You may need a lot more pumpkin. I made a 5 gallon pumpkin
saison with 4lbs of pumpkin in the mash and I couldn't taste the pumpkin in the finished
product at all. You ...

Yup, that's what I use and it works for me.

I actually haven't ever brewed with acid malt. I've heard from other folks in my homebrew club

Every fermentation is going to be a bit different. If you're really nervous about it you could
take a gravity...

get a lower FG but stronger alcohol flavors. So I don't think that's what happened. Fermenting

If you can avoid moving it that's certainly better. But there are a few things to watch out
for.- Beer getting light struck(Skunked) - Keep it out of the sun while moving, so keep it
under a blanket o...
