Yeah they have it on the shelves here now too. Hopefully I'll get better results with the fresh pumpkin, but I would be suprised if it makes much of a difference.

One other thing.. I couldn't find any canned pumpkin anywhere. So I ended up using fresh pie pumpkins after baking them in an oven for an hour.

Never had a problem with brewing at nght, but wasn't that worried about bugs in my beer. I figure they will settle out in primary :-)

I would say it has a bit of a kick, but I am definately used to drinking higher gravity brews, so this one is a sipper for me. I do think a bit more hops would of benefited this beer, and less fruit.

I've thrown them in, and I've put them in a bag, but to be honest I perfer the bag method, just makes less of a mess, and I don't have to leave as much beer in the secondary.

Going to add one more to the message above.. The biggest thing that has improved my brews is doing 5 gallon boils. Add to that, patience, and letting the beer age a bit, and whalla.

I don't know why you think you would need to waste it... I've had good results with just using a "chip clip" on my extra DME. I've kept DME for several months with no clumping.

The strange thing I ecountered is that my FG was lower before I added the fruit. Must be all the sugars in the fruit did not ferment. My FG before fruit was 1.010, it ended up 1.012 after the fruit.
