Did you use the Rager or Tinseth formula for IBU calculation?

I'm sure beersmith can switch.

Fly sparging now. Even with .5lb rice hulls, very slow. I'm not worried just letting it run it's time.

Oh...didn't know what that meant. I don't know for sure, but I'll be sure and check that. Thanks!

Yup. Did yours start running crystal clear quicker than normal like mine did? I even used a full pound!

IIRC, in preferences or tools or settings or whatever there is bitterness option and you can choose which equation you want to use. Maybe that will make the difference you're experiencing.

I made this on Saturday and everything seemed to go pretty well. I stuck to the recipe to the letter and ended with a gravity 1.062 which I was pretty happy with.
It tasted outstanding going into primary and I cooled down to about 59 degrees before pitching. I decided to make one change and use American Ale II yeast from Wyeast just because I have been curious about the yeast itself and it seemed that this would be a good time to try it. I plan to bring up the temp to about 66 over the next week or so.

Thanks again Reno for posting your recipe and I will let you know how it ends up!

So is it rice hulls, pumpkin, then grains in that order to the mash tun? And it's ok to have the pumpkin still warm?

That order worked fine for me. I had the Pumpkin still at about 115 degrees and it seemed to be fine. I still hit my target temps.

As long as you watch your temps and have cool water on hand if you go over, you should be fine.
