yes, as brown sugar is table sugar without the molasses removed; I find it adds a bit of bitter/dark caramel notes that go well with darker brews like stouts and old ales, and seemed like a good fit for a pumpkin brew.

This is a great calculator to use for proper volumes of CO2 by style and type of priming sugar used:

I just transferred to secondary. I started with 5.5 gallons in primary and ended with 4.5 gallons in secondary. Is this ok. I've never had this much head space. The picture kinda sucks but here it is.

We had the same loss of volume on our batch. You'll be fine. There is enough booze in there to keep anything from growing. We did 2 months in sevondary but there is a lot of room for personal preferance on the aging.

Ditto on the volume, probably four and a quarter gallons for me. Secondary on mine was three weeks, and I wish I would have let it go longer to settle a bit and clear some, but that can take place in the bottles. I had my third bottle yesterday and it is progressing nicely, a bit more hops than I expected, but those will fade some by Halloween.

Prepping to bottle this tonight. I brought the carboy up so anything I stir up has a chance to settle out and wow, look at that sediment!



It looks like a lot more has settled out of solution than I expected. I might have less volume left here than I expected but oh well. I already expect this to be an annual brew.

Brewed this up last night as an all grain.

11# 2-row
1.5# crystal 60
1# biscuit
.5# flaked wheat
1# light brown sugar
1# maple syrup

I baked 4oz of molasses with 90oz of pumpkin and added that to the mash as well.

2oz Glacier [6.5%] @60 min
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice @15 min

I pitched some yeast slurry from a lighter gravity pumpkin ale I brewed a couple of weeks ago. It was bubbling away nicely when I left for work in the morning, and when I got home tonight I was greeted with this.



Luckily the mess was contained and was an easy cleanup, and is now hooked up to a blow off tube.

The hydro sample tasted fantastic so I am really looking forward to seeing how adding the rum changes this, and how it tastes once it is finished.

We added a few grains of champagne yeast to about half the bottles and carbed with enough brown sugar to give us about 2.1-2.3 volumes.

My patience is finally wearing thin. I NEED to taste this beer.

For what it is worth, this beer turned our fantastic when we made it last year. Those who received bottles last year are all asking about it again. My final version of the recipe came out at about 9.7% and we left it sweet. It should probably have dried out a bit more. I am kicking myself for not fitting this one in the schedule this year.
