If you've pitched enough yeast in your pumpkin beer for healthy fermentation and it's been fermenting since last Wednesday, you can absolutely pull it out now. The off-flavor period is long gone and...

My first thought is that filtering can remove very small hop bits and yeast covered with hop oils that provide balancing bitterness. That would add the perception of sweetness.

However, I don't...

With 001, cloves + cloudy sounds to me like an infection. Band-aid & clove are nit too distant cousins in the phenol world IMO. Keep it cold & drink it fast--and if you bottle, you may want to put a...

I've keg-hopped beers as long as thirty days before without grassy flavors. It's all about temp--at 38F (my serving temp) the process is exponentially slower than at cellar or room temp. YMMV of...

if you haven't done this style, the words above are the essence of Belgian anything. Make your hop choices with those Belgian phenols in mind.

I've seen a lot of brewers say that butternut squash is a better choice to get "pumpkin flavor" (whatever that may be) than pumpkin itself.

Dry hopping is dependent on temp like most brewing processes. At 65F all processes develop SIGNIFICANTLY more quickly than at 35F in the kegerator.

By the way, I regularly put tied off bags of...

There will still be plenty of yeast in suspension to do your d-rest. My concern would be with starting your d-rest at 75% of anticipated attenuation--seems a bit early unless you're doing the Narsis...

You make good points, as usual. My version was closer to 8 SRM the first time (non-reduction version). I want to say it was Crisp but that's just a guess. I think it was in the 200s LV

Northern brewer used to have a kit for AK47 Pale Mild. One of my favorite beers, hands down. I like to run off about 20% of the boiling sort and reduce it by half or more in another pot, then add it...

You'll get a variety of opinions on the pumpkin issue. I've used canned pumpkin in the mash and zero pumpkin and I just can't tell the difference. YMMV.

As for spices, if you want them prominent...

I'd go with Willamette and Styrian Goldings. Earthy, floral & spiciness = delightful. Only possible problem I can think of is the amount of Styr. Goldings you'd need--might get a bit vegetal.

Smoked Apricot (American) Wheat Beer?

RM-MN, if the higher, shorter mash times don't work, try mixing in 30-50% of an English or Continental malted barley. They appear to respond much better to mash temp so you can work your mash.

Bone dry, same base malt to preserve flavor, same IBUs to...

Contentious? You can have my kegs when you pry the tap from my cold, dead hands!



That said, I am going to start bottle conditioning some special/big beers so they can age well.
