Are you guys washing this yeast or is it really difficult to seperate the pumpking puree & spices? I guess at the worst I could wash and just use for another batch of this if I like it.

Washing is probably the best bet here, yeah. I just grabbed it, personally. I don't think whatever trub is in my yeast is going to impart much if anything to my next beer. I did a good long cold-crash, too, which generally leaves hard trub on the bottom and more runny yeast on the top.

If it had legs, I don't think I would have kept it! #majorinfection

Second batch just about ready for chilling. Smells great.

Woo, Reno you were right about it dropping. Only day 11 and I've gone from 1.072~1.010! (Mash dropped to 148 ) I'm hoping it stays right here. I will check again in another couple days. That's a good 8.3%, a little hot when drinking it but it tastes and smells really good other than that. It's also pretty clear. Here's a pic to show clarity, I've been drinking it so don't pay attention to the ready

I just built a mashtun from a home depot 5 gallon cooler and I'm afraid it's to small. If I do 1.5 qt/lb I don't see how 12# of grain and 4.5 gallons are going to fit in a 5 gallon space. Am I missing something? Or should I get a 10 gallon?

Mash thicker, lower efficiency. Otherwise get a 10g cooler

I also used a 5 gallon cooler for this recipe and it came out at 80% eff and 9% ABV. Finished at 1.014. Delicious. It was to the brim with grain but mash then fly sparge worked great.
