No, I'm not sure. But I'm pretty sure.

I regurgitate a lot of what I've learned on these here interwebs. I might have misunderstood good information I found, and I might be repeating bad information. As with everything else you read on this forum, or others, you will need to find multiple sources supporting an idea in order to have any confidence in its veracity. Wikipedia is a good place to start.

[edit] And, in fact, you have me wondering now. It's such an easy thing to test. If only I didn't have so many kids, wives, jobs...

I should point out that I have no sources to back me up in my thinking - just seemed logical to me and I had never heard of problems with too hot a temp. I know that this is argument from ignorance, but it's all I've got at the moment! I'm off to post the question in the Science forum

sorry everyone for hijacking this thread a bit...

Has anyone had a hard time finding pumpkin for their beers this year? Several supermarkets in my area have told me they haven't had pumpkin for several months due to a pumpkin shortage or bad crop from last year. I looked on amazon and they do not have the large cans of Libby's Pumpkin either and they do not know when they will be back in stock.

I had to bite the bullet and get two 15oz cans of Organic Pumpkin from some farm in Oregon for 3.50 each. Argh!! This is the same kind they are selling on amazon in bulk for I believe 2.65 a can. Does anyone know a better place to buy pumpkin besides the local farm I wanna get some of my pumpkin beers rolling in the next few weeks and Im not sure if local pumpkins will be ready by mid August.

To answer your question about where to find some....the answer is no there is none. Due to the reasons already explained to you there is no pumpkin besides the high $$ organic stuff.

At here we have some pumpkins, but there´s not like the ones that you guys have in the USA. I´ve miscalculated the amount I was going to use in my recipe, so, right now, I´m baking the sweet potato and crushing the grains.

...22 effing pages later I've decided to make a pumpkin pie porter without the pumpkin. It seems like people who have used pumpkin say they liked it, but those that have gone without it have the same things to say. I am going to make a lighter version of the punkin porter recipe from extreme brewing by Sam Calagion without the pumpkin. The spices seem to make up the beer, hope it turns out well.

I am not sure if anyone ever chimed in about the effect of the decoction on the sparge ease....

DO IT!@!#*^&%$^#^%(@!!!!! Holy cow does it make a huge difference in the ease of sparging through that goop.

Decoct for sure.
