Banana bread ale. Yes, I've had it. It's made by wells, so you can pick one up and try to taste it and mimmick it.

How about a Porter and flavor it w/some cold brewed Mexican coffee? You can control the APV w/BeerSmith software.

Hi Darkmastiff,

Felicitaciones en su padrinazgo! If you can't brew lagers (no lagering fridge), you can make a brown ale. In Nevember in the US, many of us like pumpkin ales as we associate the Halloween (vispera del Dia de los muertos) and Thanksgiving season with traditional pumpkin pie. This pastel is made with pumpkin and spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger and allspice.

If you go this route, you can spice with about two teaspoons combined of the above dried spices at 5 minutes left in the boil. If you have access to calabaza, you can pre-boil and then mini-mash it with a pound or two of a base malt. This will be hard to drain/sparge, and the pumpkin will hold a lot of the wort, so be forewarned that it will be messy. It will help produce a burnt orange tint to the beer, and some pumpkin flavor.

Taste your sample after primary fermentation and decide if you want to secondary with more spices. You can use a spice tea if you desire more.

If you're interested, there are some good recipes on this forum, like the one here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f76/thun...ersions-26699/

Salud!

Since pumpkin originally came from mexico, you should at least find it fresh. If that's the case, then slice it into large wedges, leave it on the rind and roast it in a 350 degree oven for 45- 60 minutes then dig out the fruit with a spoon and use that.

In D.F. you should be able to find Victoria, which is a Vienna-style lager. Alternatively you may be able to find Negro Modelo.

A pumpkin beer would be good but it might put some people off. I think a dunkelweizen fermented on the cooler side would be generally well received. Same for a cool fermented dubbel. Personally I would probably take a look at the fresh produce and local spices and see what interesting beer could be made, like a chile beer or an agave blonde or something using local sugar products, etc. that are hard to find outside of the region.

Agave blonde sounds cool.
