This stuff was great. I used less water though. I think i used 3 quarts waters instead of 4.
* 1½ lbs. Puréed Pumpkin (either home-made or canned, but don't use "Pumpkin Pie Filling")
* Approximately 4 qts. Water
* 2 cups Brown Sugar
* ¼ cup Raisins, chopped
* 9 inches Cinammon Stick, cut into 1-inch pieces
* 4 or 5 Cloves
* 1 oz. Grated Ginger
* 1/8 tsp. Ale Yeast grains
* ¼ cup Lukewarm Water
Simmer two quarts of water, the pumpkin purée, sugar, raisins, cinammon, cloves, and ginger for about half an hour.
Take it off the heat, and let it cool off covered for about thirty minutes. Then strain the mixture into a carboy and add another one or two quarts of water.
Prepare the yeast in the ¼ cup of lukewarm water, then add it to the carboy. Mix thoroughly, then bottle immediately.
Store in a temperature stable place, and check its carbonation after two days. Refrigerate it immediately once it is "fizzy" enough.
