Hey Moody, looks like our ST Imperial Pumking Ale's will be coming out of bottle priming (if you bottle) around the same time, we might have to arrange a Pumking tasting. I used info on bottle and a brew calculator to come up with grains/extracts, shooting for ABV and the color from a bottle I tried, which is a VERY clear, light orange color. Got my hops and yeasts from Leerner's.

Excellent!!! I just put mine in the secondary last night. I went on the lower end of the 5-7 days spectrum for transferring it over. It smelled great, not sure if it'll taste a thing like Pumking, but as long as it's a tasty pumpkin beer, it won't be all for naught. I need to shoot out to Leener's again, it's been a while, good to know that they have the right stuff. I'm all for a tasting! I don't know if I'm going to bottle or keg this one yet, I'll probably bottle.

My ST Imp Pumking fermenting so far..........

Fermentation-Pitched yeast 9/19 @ 2100, bubbling every 45 sec on 9/20 at 1700, every 10 sec @ 2200. 9/21 @ 0800 steady slow, @ 1700 steady fast @ 2230 steady rapid. 9/22 @ 0800 steady rapid, as well as @ 1700 and 2200. 9/23 @ 0800 steady, @ 1700 steady slow, took SG reading of 1.040 at 72 degrees non-corrected for SG of 1.041, 8.54% ABV.

My guess is this will stop fermenting soon as the ABV is up to 8.5%, not sure how high this WLP002 yeast can go, I was shooting for FG of around 1.023 which would be a 10.8% ABV. I am wondering how I will get the pumpkin pulp out of this as one thing about the original is that it's SOOOO crystal clear. I may have to go thru more than one secondary to settle out the pulp because all my strainers get immediately plugged by the pulp. This tasted pumpkiny and had an alcohol bite, still to early to tell on the spice and vanilla I think.

How did you guys do yours? All grain or extract? I did extract and I put my pumpkin in the grain bag and steeped it for about 45 min before adding the grains to the bag. Did you guys just put the pumpkin into the boil? I can see that that could get a little messy to strain out! I tasted mine as I transferred to the secondary, it tasted pumpkiny and I could taste the spices too. Not sure if it'll turn out like ST, but it will be a good beer I think. I took an all grain recipe and converted it blindly without using any conversion software. I subbed out ingredients that the store I went to didn't have. I had the right grains (carmel pils, and victory) and I had Sterling hops but a lot of the other stuff I had to kind of wing. I think I just repeated mysefl there, but oh well! Haha.

Does anyone know what ingredient(s) give the pumpking that 'creamy' character?

I have a pumpkin ale in primary now, not a ST clone though. When I cooked my pumpkin, i cooked a bunch extra and stored in a sanitized container. I was thinking of racking into the secondary onto the remaining roasted pumpkin, anyone try that with good results?

I get ginger (i.e., ginger snap cookies) when I drink it.
