Just bottled today, the OG sample tasted pretty good. Can't wait for 3 weeks to go by now!!

Brewing now... Second AG I have ever done. Heck its like the sixth batch total lol. Wish me luck! Scaled it down to 5 gal batch (well 5.5 to account for some trub loss from the pumpkin.) LHBS didn't have the yeast so I had to use Wyeast American Ale. Whole house smells like thanksgiving!

Ok, so I've been reading just about all of this thread an am wanting to do the extract version but was only wanting to do a 2.5 gallon batch. Am I correct in just dividing the recipe in half? Can't wait to get this one going!

Yup, although this is for a 6.5 gal primary to give you a 5 gal secondary. So you need to factor that in too. But yes, you have the right idea.

So 3.25 gallons when cutting it in half from 6.5 then. I need to get this one going if it's going to be ready by Halloween !

From what I read about the difficulties and the benefits of adding pumpkin... what if I just add orange food coloring instead of pumpkin? Or would that screw things up?

Then it wouldn't be pumpkin beer but orange food coloring beer.

I wonder how this would taste aged on some oak chips soaked in spiced rum. I might have to give this a shot later. This would be a good one to take to a halloween party.
