According to Beersmith I did 3.85 gallons in mash and fly sparged 3.89. Got right under 5 gallons after boil.

Hey now! Anybody bottle this? After 8 days of bottle conditioning my brew is flat. I know, minimum of 3 weeks at 70 degrees to achieve proper carbonation. When I transferred it to the secondary I used a hop bag at the end of my cane to filter the brew better. Starting to think that was a bad idea. I do have a small amount of sediment at the bottom of each bottle. Just wondering what your experience was with bottling it. I would like to share this with friends before Halloween.

I've done that with alot of my "messy beers" while transferring and never had a carbonation issue. This beer is still fresh in my primary and I can't wait to try it so I understand your impatience

If you take a look just a few pages back, Reno was so kind enough to post a link to my almost exact same question about carbing in bottles.. Mine is also still fresh in primary and still has about 2 and half weeks to go before I bottle.. I hope that link helps!

Cheers!

It took my version last year almost 3 months to be fully carbed and conditioned in the bottle. Brewed it late in August last year and took til the end of November. Sometimes it just takes longer

Yup, general rule is higher OG takes more time to carbonate.

I'm going to brew this for my first all grain recipe. My thoughts are though, that I would cut the brown sugar into 2 different steps. I want to roast the pumpkin with a 1/4 cup of it sprinkled on top of the pumpkin, then use the other 3/4 cup during the boil. I also will be using 2/3 cup of light brown sugar and adding a 1/2 tsp of the pumpkin pie spices plus an additional 1/2 tsp of Cinnamon to my bottling mixture. Do you foresee any ramifications to doing this?

I hope this pic isn't too big. I'll delete it if it is. This was exactly two weeks after bottling. Garnished with a little pumpkin spice. It's still very young, but already drinkable. The garnish of spice really helped the aroma. I highly recommend. Thank you Reno for the recipe!
