Good to hear. I am contemplating making this soon. And I would crush my own spices. Worth while to make?

Definitely! Mine turned out ok, but it was my first batch ever. ( And is still a bit young). A friend of mine who me into brewing made this last fall and it was the best pumpkin ale I had tasted (I have had about 5 commercial varieties).
If you like pumpkin ales, this is a good one!

Absolutely! This beer seriously benefits from aging and doing so in bulk does it faster. If I could make a suggestion, skip the secondary. Leaving it on the yeast in primary will allow them to clean up and age faster. Also just using a single vessel is easier and prevents infection/oxidation due to exposure to new surfaces and potential splashing.

But if you must, the kegs make good secondaries.

Saw some Libby's at the grocery store and picked it up. I am tempted to just brew this now and try my best to hold onto it until September since I now have all the ingredients. Though I am thinking it may be best to wait until the end of July so that it is fully ready by end of august or September...let's hope I can find other stuff to hold me over until then!

I brewed this last Sept/Oct and still have a few bottles around. It's a great beer. Ages well too. Highly recommend!

I brewed this about two months ago (batch #2 of it) and my hydrometer was off or something so while I thought I had been way under on my numbers, I went and added 2 lbs of DME to get it to where it should be and after I was done brewing it and chilling, I took a final OG reading and it was super high.... so, it ended up being around an 8% beer which isn't necessarily bad and everyone who tries it loves it and have had a bunch ask me to brew a batch just for them but tasting both, I would definitly go with the stated recipe as the 8% is a bit too boozy for what most would want in this beer for all around balance. If you want to get drunk fast... Sure!
Love this recipe, it's fantastic!
