I bottle this recipe Nov 15 and chilled one last night for a sip this evening.

The taste was fantastic. Wife liked it too. Plans are to give most of it away as Christmas presents.

I reckon I will be brewing another batch this weekend.

My FG came in at 1020 with an calculated ABV of 5.78%.

Carbed it with 147g of dextrose.

The sample could certainly use another couple of weeks under carb.

thanks for sharing the recipe BierMuncher!

Brewed this on Nov. 12 with the addition of New Mexico red chile (mild) and cocoa. I ended up slightly low on OG, and nailed FG as of Nov. 26. The sample was awesome, and I should bottle sometime this week.

I'm looking for popping a few on Christmas.

Well, my final gravity was about 1.031 which means it came in at about 4.32% but I'm not complaining. Why you may ask?

Because I tasted the sample I took for my reading and it was so good I offered the rest to some guests who were over learning to brew. We poured it in glasses and drank it! Incredible flavor!

Thanks again for posting this recipe!!!

My thoughts exactly. I've never had such a tasty treat come straight out of a fermenter...

2 tsp pumpkin spice with a 'dash' of clove mixture (in vodka) 15 min left in boil

Any thoughts/suggestions?
After bottle conditioning for 3 weeks popped the first today (after it being in the fridge for 10 hours) and shared with coworkers - nice subtle spice notes with slight pumpkin undertones, surprising since we used 7# of pumpkin for a 10 gal batch... a really smooth drink...

Brewed this yesterday. Used an ounce of Northern Brewer at 60 min, and an ounce of Fuggles at 2 min. Didn't have time to do a starter of London, so used S-04.

It's been going since this morning. Smells great!! Can't wait to keg this! Thanks BM!!!

stoked on the hype around this beer. Here is my recipe draft due to current inventory & starters : )

Notes: this version has more IBU's(switched hops) and i cranked up the grain count to try to estimate for a 6 gal batch and higher gravity. My boil off amounts have never reached what it should be. Does anyone think this will be too bitter for the highly praised Black Pearl Porter?

I just picked up the ingredients for this one, but made a few substitutions. My LHBS had no Crystal 30, so I went with Bairds Carastan 30-37 instead. I have no fuggin' Fuggles at the house, but I do happen to have a bunch of Willamette. So I'm subbing in the Willamette. I can't wait to see how this one turns out...from reading this entire post, it seems to be a huge hit! I have to say, though, I'm hoping to get the FG down a little under 1.020. Anything more than that is a caloric punch to the face, unless it's offset by a bigger ABV! In that case, the punch to the face is worth it.
