That's it! Weird... the whole bold print section doesn't appear unless I view it through the browser. Thanks!

How do you pronounce "Samhain"?

If you want to be technically correct it's something like "Sow-in" or "Sow-een" but I think it's also ok to say "Sam-ane" or "Sam-hane".

Ordered everything for this today, NB had the Dennys yeast. Might try a half pound of roasted rolled oats maybe not. Also, im going to procure fresh whole spices from the natural food store, toast them in a small pan, grind them, and use that. Really excited, ill tell you how it goes.

That is the yeast I used with the kit pumpkin ale I brewed. Turned out really well!

What does anyone think about brewing this recipe as written - but with the Wyeast 3711 French Saison yeast...to make it a Pumpkin Saison? I have a vial of it. I've never made a saison with golden promise/maris otter, but what would there be to lose, except maybe the DMS that can go with Pils malt?

Thoughts?

That actually sounds really good. If you try it please report back because I'd love to hear how it turns out.

getting ready to brew this in a few days, I only have regular 2row for the base malt. Will that change the flavor much?

Done! Was a pretty tough lauter, a lot longer than any other beer I've done, but I sure am glad I used a pound of rice hulls. I ended up using the Libby's pumpkin pie mix, which has spices, only because that's pretty much all I could find. The taste of the mix was good and I liked the spice aroma, so I opted not to spice at all at this point. I will see how the spice level seems when primary is done and if I need to add more I will just add some spice tea the the bottling bucket when the time comes.

BTW, when I make my hangtag for the beer, it will claim "1 ounce of pumpkin per bottle". I know Sam Adams website makes a big deal of 11 pounds of pumpkin per barrel - this is about twice that amount!
