Why not. It has to be cooled down anyways. I would place it in an air tight container to ensure it doesn't pickup some off flavors.

Should I use the typical 1.25 qt/lb ratio for the mash? I'm a bit confused because I see the AG recipe on the first page says to mash with 6 gallons. Are you supposed to add more water because of the pumpkin?

Wow, 1.080??? Did you use the same grain bill?

With so much activity on this thread, I am brewing my rendition tomorrow. Reno, the Northern Brewer hops dont get minty in this brew so much as earthy and herbal. Definitely adds somthing special to an already awesome beer.

ok, here we go. Steeping grains as I type - doing partial mash. Cooked my pumpkin about 5am, cooled it down, and put it in it's own mesh bag alongside the grain mesh bag. Picked up the extra bag of yeast as Reno suggested. Will post my OG next.

I didn't change the recipe but I grind grains very fine. I also did not sparge. Missed my Wort volume and had to boil two hours to get down to 5.5 gallons. Starting to think I should get some brew software that would figure it all out for me.

OG came out at 1.062 so I was off a little. What a mess, but it's in the fermenter and have a blow off tube all ready. Now, we wait....

AH! I get a new job and suddenly the thread gets assaulted. That makes me happy!

kegboy500 -- Good choice with the piloncillo. That should be really tasty.

brew2enjoy -- The extra water is indeed to accommodate for the pumpkin. Pumpkin is pretty moist but it'll still suck up a ton of water.

Waterboy42 -- Good, I was wondering about that. Glad it came out well
