This apple pie beer idea is genius, definitely on the to-brew list. However im not terribly keen on adding a gallon of apple cider to the beer. I wonder if racking onto pasteurized apple pulp would be a worthy substitute?

Half a pound of roast barely is probably ok if your mom burnt every apple pie she every made for you. So for those of us with moms that could cook, id shoot for more of a copper/amber. With that grainbill you might only need 1 oz of Roast to get it there. My humble opinion of course

This is gonna be pumkin beer all over again i can feel it....Funny story, ask me about it sometime haha

Oh and on hops...never heard of northdown but goldings tend to be pretty earthy, which might be compliment the spices well. However i just may go with something more fruity, centennial or cascade.

I was not keen on adding apple cider to it so instead of using 1 apple in a muslin bag I have 3 different types sliced up they are gala, granny smith, and the worlds best apple honeycrisp. When it goes to the secondary I will be adding vanilla and nutmeg. Once I get out of this boring ass meeting I will be making this beer so i'll post pictures later on.

So i brewed a pumkin beer the fall of 09, i was still pretty new to brewing. I did a partial mash amber base with half a whole pumkin. I think i put a teaspoon of the regular spices and 3 whole cloves, the cloves ended up in the fermenter(big mistake). So the beer turned out like crap, or at least i thought so. My friend however loved it and wanted it, so we haphazardly bottled it and he took most of it home. If he could have kept it to him self it would have been fine, but he shares it with some other people i know. The guy who kinda helped me do my first brews takes one swig and spits it out in the sink in disgust. So the pumkin beer has turned into a bit of a running joke, to this day i get bugged about it.

Heres the best part though, i found the last surviving bottle of it last month. And you know what, it was pretty decent, the cloves had died way down. Only took a year and a half haha.
