Just started my mash on this now. Threw in 2 pounds of rice hulls just in case. Making 11 gallons. Recirculating the mash now and so far so good! I was worried about all of that pumpkin getting stuck in the mash...

Something similar to this will be my next brew. I'm going add 4 oz of chocolate, use Wyeast 1272, and ferment on the cool side.

I love autumn and this will be ready just when the leaves are peaking.

This thread has blown the eff up since I last visited. I ended up going with a recipe influenced by this and the Thunderstruck version. Played with Beersmith for a good while and brewed up a fresh batch that is now at the end of life within the better bottle.

I luckily had some McCormic's on hand so that is what I used, measured as per your recipe. The only problem we had was the OG falling short due to some sparging issues. We generally BIAB, but this time the LHBS lacked the bag! Next time I'll have to make sure I buy what I need well before the brew day.

Oh, and I let fermentation reach 72 for a solid 10+ hours. Slapped my own wrist for that one.

Ended up splitting my 10 gallons into 2 and pitched us-05 into one and us-04 into the other.

Will be interesting to see the difference.

Just mashed in! 20 quarts, mash now sitting a bit low at 152* but not worried. Had to stir a bit longer than thought because of the pumpkin clumps. Smells awesome! Second go around with this recipe. First one was fantastic. In fact, this was commissioned by my BiL. Ya have to like when people like your brew

Just crushed my grain for this one this afternoon, going to make it for the second time tomorrow morning. Hopefully I'll have better efficiency after crushing it myself this time. Will try to take pictures.

I'll be doing the partial mash version and wanting to do a full boil for the first time. Should I mash in with the full amount if water?Also does 7 gallons seem like the right amout ( mash, boil, chill )
