Hey no problemo, I'm willing to offer help where I have some experience but I think I end up absorbing alot more than I have to offer. Now if you were to ask about kegging I'd be a bit more useful

All I know is that my keg of Pumpkin Ale did not last long... I think it's the only spiced beer that I would never hesitate to remake!

What does the AHS recipe recommend for the amount of pumpkin, type of pumpkin, and boil time?

Bringing this thread back to life. I'm thinking of picking up midwest's version. So my question, I'm thinking of dumping the canned pumpkin in at the 60 minute point, not in a bag and go with it, should I put the pumpkin in a grain bag? Thanks

It tasted like bitter pumkin pie going into the fermentor. I have very high hopes for this one. Flavors should mend together nicely over the next few months.
Hi hopp head, do you recall how this turned out? I'm lookinorgor a fairly strong pumpkin beer. So the pumpkin and brown sugar were placed in bags and not just thrown in. Thx

Hmm, thinking this might be a good beer to make in a month or so. Or an Oktoberfest...hmmm.

Planning on brewing a pumpkin ale this fall. Does anyone have any recipe that's similar to Dogfishhead's Punkin' Ale. That stuff is Thanksgiving in a bottle.

I'm planning to brew this one on Sunday: Samhain Pumpkin Ale

I'm going to let this age in the keg until Fall.

I did the AHS Extract Pumkin Kit about a month ago. I added two 29 oz. cans of spiced Libby's Pumpkin Pie mix straight to the grain bag. The beer is REALLY good right now, but I'm going to condition it until September, and it should end up that much better!
