Me too, this is a great beer and a crowd pleaser. My father even liked it and he has been drinking MGD for as long as I can remember.

I believe I'm going to make this my first all grain brew... Still gathering equipment to do an all grain but I think this will make a perfect starting brew! Thanks for the recipe!! I'll let you know how it turns out!

You're going to mash 3+ lbs of pumpkin for your first AG? Brave. Don't forget the rice hulls.

This was my first AG beer too lol... The pumpkin part wasn't bad. The rice hulls kept everything in check, and my stainless braid was brand new.

Yeah this brew actually went pretty smooth for me. I used the rice hulls though.

Well this thread is extremely informative barring any complications or stupid mistakes on my part it should go pretty smooth... That's what I keep telling myself anyways : )

The only piece of advice I can give you is to not be tempted to use more spices than the man says. I did, and I wished I hadn't. Also, this would make an awesome base for an English pale ale w/out the spice.

I am planning on brewing this beer this weekend hopefully.
I just read through all 25 pages of this thread as well....so I think I am ready for it, as this will only be my 3rd all grain batch.

I was thinking of adding vanilla extract and saw that some people did so. I strictly bottle at this time so should I add the vanilla to the bottling bucket and rack on top of that or is there a better option?

I am still new to this...so thanks in advance for answering.

Also I will be toasting the malt tonight. After toasting I am going to let it sit in a paper bag until we brew.
Should I crush them before putting them in the bag (after toasting of course) or crush them on my brew day?

Thanks again
