Great clarity. Looks exactly like mine, I used Sparkelloid and got it to drop crystal clear. Did you use anything?

Tapping my keg this weekend at a Halloween Party. Took a taste when I kegged it, had a bready mouthfeel with nice spice note. Will have been sitting on gas for 3 weeks now, hopefully it tastes even better!

I am making a ten gallon batch of this tomorrow. Four 29 oz cans of pumpkin!

The only molasses I could find was a 12 fluid ounce jar. How does that equate to the half pound of a double recipe? I think I am going to just dump it all in.

I think you'll be fine half pound is 8oz, so you have almost what it calls for. If it were me (and I did this on my two batches...) Sprinkle about a half cup of Brown sugar on the pumpkin before baking. That'll make up for anything you lost in the missing 4oz of molasses IMO.

Don't confuse fluid ounces with ounces. A fluid ounce of molasses will weigh much more than an ounce. Milesvdustin, just weigh out your desired amount of molasses into a pyrex measuring cup on a balance. Using the pyrex measuring cup allows you to dunk it in the boiling wort to wash out the thick molasses.

Yeah I know there is a big difference in fluid and weight ounces. I'll get the ole scale out. When I bake this much pumpkin, can I do it in casserole dishes?
