What size mash tuns do you guys have? 38 pounds of grain is a ton. I wish I could make a 10 gallon batch of this but i sure won't be unless I make another mash tun other than my 10 gallon drink cooler.

I am excited to try this.
1 tsp of each ingredient.

Fall will be here before we know. Finally gonna brew this recipe, should be in its prime Oct-Dec, pumped!!

Anymore thoughts on when the pumpkin should be added and why, seen so much back and forth on the subject, guess Ill just add it to the boil.

If you feel compelled to use pumpkin, you should bake it with sugar/spices then add it to the mash. I personally don't use it.

I plan on giving this a shot. The feedback sounds amazing, but I'm still a little leary on adding 2 pounds of crystal to a 5 gallon batch. And also, 40 IBU's seems a little excessive for a pumpkin ale. Can someone please ease my mind on these probably minute issues I'm having with it? I'm still having night terrors from the "Pumking clone" I brewed last year and need assurance this won't break my heart.

So just to be clear, you added another 1/2 tsp of each of the spices again at kegging instead of using Pumpkin Pie Spice? Making this on Saturday, looking forward to it!

Thanks!

No, I use a pre-blended pumpkin pie spice at kegging.

I would agree, but with a beer this big/malty/sweet, it's just fine. It attenuates down to 1.020 without issue, I've even had it drop further than that.
