when i went to keg, i opened the primary and it smelled like someone farted in it. i was worried the beer was ruined, however the finished beer has zero fart taste or aroma.
Read this to my SWMBO she said the glass rim idea sounds really tasty, she likes it. She said she's really glad the beer didn't come out tasting like a fart.
She asked me what a fart tastes like .... I didn't know so I thought I'd ask...

Hahaha. When I bottled mine it tasted and smelled bad and I also thought I fudged something up. After 4 weeks in bottle, I couldn't believe how good it was.

HA, yup. Patience really pays off with this one.

Actually, mine is kind of hot right now and it's really covering up the spices. But I'm sure in a week or two I'll be posting about how much it's changed.

Mine has been in the bottle for 2 weeks now. I'm thinking of sampling one next week.

Well just made my second batch of this great brew. I bought the grain from an online shop because of a great deal. They shipped what was labeled at two bags of 5# of 2-row but there was an extra bag that just said 2-row. I assumed they just gave me extra grain. Well I learned an important lesson...always weight your ingredients unless you weight and bag yourself! I realized the grain bill was low during the fly sparge but obviously I was already a bit late, so I just finished it up.

OG as 1.053 (my last batch came in at 1.081) but I neglected 3-4 lbs of base malt. The final wort smelled awesome so I'm just going to call this one Drunkin Punkin Lite!

If you have some lme on hand, you could boost it. But, it'll probably be good all the same.

I'd just let it ride if I were you. I'm sure it'll end up tasting just as good, just without the winter warmer effect.

Mine ended up really harsh! I don't understand why. Could this have to do with my water? I used half a campden tablet for 10 gallons to dechlorinate.

It is really weak on the spices too. I'm not sure if I should just let it go longer (brewed 10/25, bottled 11/12) or if it's a lost cause.

Turned out great! Been in the bottles now for 3 weeks. You can tell the Pumpkin is there, but its not overpowering. Love it!

Leave it alone. Don't crack a bottle till Christmas Eve. The spices come through very nicely with time.
