I'm down for a trade when they're all good to go. I'm not going to go over the top on the vanilla. I may use expensive extract instead and tailor it to suit me. It'll be great either way.

Has anyone attempted the extract version of this recipe? I'm planning on trying it in a few weeks and was wondering how it turned out for others.

Doing a PM version this weekend, based on the calculations at the beginning of the thread. Would a late extract addition be a good idea?

Adding the extract earlier, as I'm sure you know, will make the beer darker. If you want the light orange hue similar to oktoberfests the do a late addition. If you want a darker orange closer to brown than early addition will do you best.


EDIT: Early addition will also create some caramelization which could add nicely to the brew.

I'm still a bit of a newb. How does the early addition cause carmelization? I guess my concern was adding 5 lbs of extract at the same time as the brown sugar. It wouldn't take anything away from the brown sugar, would it?

Nope! I boil my brown sugar for 60 minutes because I want some caramelization, which will happen to some extent if you heat sugar long enough at a hot enough temperature. Contact with the surface of the boil kettle helps as well

Do the spiced and unspiced Libby's cans look exactly the same? I found lots of the cans locally but on the ingredients list, the last ingredient was spices. The cans I found looked exactly like the one Reno posted a few posts ago.

Nevermind! I was at a Walmart, and they only had 30 oz cans that listed spices. I went to Meijer and they had tons of the Libby 29 oz cans with only pumpkin as the ingredient. The cans look similar, so be careful when purchasing!

This looks great Reno. I've been eyeing this one for a little while now waiting for some space to clear out, but I just ordered the bill for this today. Really looking forward to it.

I know, right?! You did the right thing, though. Safest bet is to read the ingredient list posted below the Nutritional Facts chart.

Thanks for the interest and the compliments Be sure to post your results

Are you going to try to find pumpkin or just use the spice?
