I brewed this up in August and cracked a bottle last night...it is awesome!
I brewed up a 5 gallon batch and used 7# 2-row and 8# of Marris Otter so my OG came in at around 1.080. I also didn't use cloves in my boil and cut out the pumpkin pie spice reccommended at bottling. Instead, I added a vanilla bean that I soaked in vodka for 3 weeks and 1/2 teaspoon of ginger and nutmeg to the secondary.
To me it tastes like a less cloyingly sweet version of Pumking, which I also love, and SWMBO described it 'pumpkin pie in a glass'.
At around 8% ABV, you can barely detect the alcohol.
Thanks again for this recipe
It will likely be my yearly pumpkin brew since it is great and I don't have to deal with actual pumpkin mess!!
