Just brewed this one today! The wort tasted really good, hope it turns out well!!

(just realized I put in 1/2tsp extra of both allspice and cinnamon) it'll hopefully be okay.

I brewed it this weekend. did the extract version.

Went a little different route with the pumpkin. I used a real pumpkin, cut into 1inch cubes, and baked for a hour. then steeped the pumpkin with the grains instead of boiling. i was curious, so.....we will see what happens!!!!

I sampled my first bottle of this ale last night. WOW - fantastic! It will definitely be a beer I'll brew every year. MY wife was totally in love with it.

I added the normal amount of spices in the last 5 min. of the boil and now that i taste it 2.5 weeks after brew day, i think it might need a "spice tea". I'm sure yours will be fine.

If it finishes too dry (below 1.010), add 4 to 8 ounces of lactose. I did that this year, and the sample I just pulled is really good. The fix for next year's batch is to mash a little higher (I was a little lower than the planned 158F) and perhaps accomplish a mash out.

I am doing the extract version of the recipe and am wondering what would be the most effective way to brew my "spice tea". Should I boil my water and then steep the spices or should I boil the spices?
I will be adding this to my secondary.
Thanks again!

This has been a huge hit with my family (craft beer drinkers) and my friends (not so much craft beer people but learing) It really needs more time in the keg but I doubt it will make it long, thanks for the recipe!

I had a bottle of this last night and it tasted really good. It's been at least 3 weeks in the bottle. I tried a bottle premature and it tasted a little funny, but that taste definitely is settling out.

Okay, do I steep the Caramel/Crystal Malt, Biscuit Malt, and flaked Wheat for 20-30 minutes, then add the DME for the boil?

Yes - take a look around the Beginner's forum and the wiki for more detailed instructions on extract+grain recipes.
