From the descriptions that I have gathered about the two, the London ESB is a bit fruitier and the Safale is a bit cleaner.

Should I just stick to the recipe or throw it on to the yeast cake? I should get a nice quick fermentation that way. Just don't want the flavor to be drastically different.
I'm thinking you will end up with a sweeter maltier beer which might be OK. I chose us-56 because it is clean and neutral. It's up to you and your preference.

Putting this order together as we speak...you said you couldn't taste the maple syrup and I am happy leaving this out ($$$), what would you recommend to bring the OG up? Just scale everything?

Hey Rich did you use 100% maple syrup in your recipe or just plain ol' watered down maple syrup in your recipe? Had me a Maple Nut Brown Ale this evening and the Maple syrup was amazing. Think it would be fantastic in this beer.

It was pure maple syrup and it cost A LOT.

Yes I would just scale up the grain bill. You could also use honey if you want to boost the OG without increasing the body of the beer.

As far as replacing the syrup in this recipe, would two lbs. of dme do the trick? Would I get the same amount of fermentables?

Two pounds of DME would do the trick. You may want to up the hop schedule just a tad though to balance the extra malt.

I'm thinking about brewing something similar to this. Would you reccomend roasting the pumpkin for a bit before adding to the boil, or just straight from the can?

I've seen both ways reccomended.

I've heard a lot of people say they roasted theirs. I think it's a matter of personal taste. I like the way mine turned out so I won't roast the pumpkin in future batches.
