We had our halloween party Saturday night and I had the pumpkin on tap as well as hard cider, pale ale and Rye IPA. The pumpkin keg was easily the most popular. Someone brought a mixed 12 pack of Saranac beer and it had their pumpkin in it. I normally love this pumpkin beer. We did a comparison tasting and everyone preferred the punkin ale. When I tried Saranacs after having this one I couldn't even tell it was a pumpkin beer, it had almost no flavor. My father is a coors drinker and I caught him drinking the pumpkin.

Currently got this mashing. Used real pumpkins, as canned pumpkin is not readily available here in Oz. Will be using #1332 Northwest Ale. Brewing this as a surprise contribution to an American friends annual Thanksgiving Party.

Thanks Reno for recipe and great thread.

10 days in the bottle and cracked a couple testers to taste with my brewing buds. All like it better than commercial examples. Of corse it's not yet fully carbed- kinda like sparkling cider. Gonna give it 2 more weeks b4 I let anyone else drink it. It's a keeper!

I'm sure it'll turn out amazing. I feel like this is a brew that can benefit from a long primary.

Nice to hear it's so good after only 10 days in bottles. And yeah, give it time. It only gets better with age

well i was impatient....
i haven't had a home brew in close to 6 months so i cracked one open on haloween. of course it was flat... but that smell i was getting from primary during bottling time is completely gone now... i think it was the CO2 messing with my nose.

can't wait for another few weeks! i think i'll wait till thanksgiving and crack another to test.

Kegged my version of this today (I use a handful of different malts and proportions, but I use Reno's brown sugar additions and hop schedule). Smells great, as always!

Bottled my version of this after 4 weeks in the primary. I added a pound of oatmeal and a box of nabisco graham crackers to the posted recipe. The pumpkin hits you in the nose with a little alcohol and it tastes pretty good right now but I think it will benefit from a little more aging.
