I dumped it all in man...let it marinate. Move to a secondary after a week and leave the sludge in the primary(which will take a minute to clean out)

It's not allowing me to upload my photo's guys, I apologize. Essentially it's just pics as I go through the process. Just follow my recipe and make any adjustments you like, I've only tried 1 of these so far (still aging in the basement for Halloween 2011) and the one I tried was frickin awesome. Closest Pumking Knock off I've tried. The carmalized pumkin flavor w the vanilla is upfront, super tasty. The honey is nice too.

Post the recipes you use and how they turn out.

I'll let you know how this batch turns out after a full year of aging in October..

After talking about this yesterday, after work i threw a bottle in the fridge for a few hours, poured it into a frozen glass late night and enjoyed. Unbelievable. Have to pat myself on the back for tweeking the recipe this way. This is the only brew I can honestly say, of the beers i've brewed, this is the only one I can say is great. Almost perfect.

Did you go a full boil or partial? I can only do partial boils in my 5 gallon pot so I can probably fit 3-3.5 gallons into the boil.

WM, I want to try your recipe and tweaks. Can you send me the pictoral? Also, I'll probably be trying to extract version. Any suggestions for modifications to your tweaks for that?

to the OP, you can always adjust the flavors post ferment by making a spice tea. Its pretty common for pumpkin beers.

I did a full boil, it was an extract version. But i only boil about 25% of the malt extract to minimize malt carmalization, add the remainder at 5 mins or at flameout.

I'm having problems posting the pics on this site for some reason. If anyone wants to give their email i'd be happy to email the pics.

Gotcha! Looking at the MW Supplies site, which yeast did you opt for? Also, my email is just my username at gmail. Thanks!
