Brewed this one week ago and followed everything except I used S-04 for the first time. Looks like it's clearing up decently. Went from 1.055 to 1.013 so far. I'm not the biggest fan of pumpkin beers (I'm brewing this for a Thanksgiving party) but I do really like the spices and the amounts of them. 2 more weeks in primary, 3 more in bottle. This should turn out pretty nice. Thanks for the recipe!

Just poured my first(and second) pint of this. It is still hazy from force carbing and hopefully will clear up well. I added more spice during the boil with each hop addition. The spice level is present but thankfully not overpowering. The malt is perfect, nice body and unbelievable head retention(45 minutes and like a guinness) . The pumpkin is definitely present and makes the beer. I am happy I made a 10 gallon batch.

Thanks KingBrian! Another winner! I will post a picture soon.

I wanted to brew this this weekend, but couldnt find caramalt or golden promise. I got maris otter instead and I read that carapils was a good sub but i think i got the wrong kind (dextrine malt) and its already mixed into my grain bill. I can still get 1lb of crystal 10 and throw it in but will the carapils have an affect on the end product?

Carapils is much lighter and has much less flavor that the british caramalt I use in this recipe. Having said that, using carapils won't create a bad beer, it just wont have quite as much of that caramally toffee flavor and the beer may be slightly lighter in color. If you could find a british light or medium crystal, throwing in about a half a pound will help you get those flavors and that little bit of extra color. But just going with what you already have mixed up should be fine too.

Cheers!

Brian

I found caramalt in the next town over where my in laws live. They are coming to visit tomorrow so i'm going to have them bring me some.

The idea of your imperial version intrigued me so I think im going to up my maris otter to 11lb and add the 1lb of caramalt. Hopefully it turns out.
