My Samhain variant (with caramelized marshmallows) finished up and tastes awesome. They provided character and the nose of toasted marshmallows, but it's not pervasive and seems right at home in this beer. Can't wait until its carbed. Used WLP002 for its tight trub and clear finish.

Brewing this now, 30min into boil. The 1st running was slow, but the sparge took about 30min even with rice hulls. No biggie, got more than enough for full 6.5gal boil.

Cheers

I mentioned it a couple weeks ago but my plan for this year's version of Samhain Pumpkin Ale is going to get the imperial treatment. I'm also going to add a bit of vanilla butter and nut flavoring at kegging to get something along the lines of ST Pumking. The starter of WY1450 is spinning away on the stir plate right now and I bought a sack of golden promise todayso not only will I have enough for this beer, but for lots of sweet golden promise beers in the next couple months!

I've been forced into patience with mine, since I broke instructions and overspiced it last year. The spices have just now faded to the point where it is good. It's more or less been lagering or about 9 months. It is gloriously clear
