I have read the entire 19 pages of posts and am excited to try my first Pumpkin Ale using the recipe YR has posted and updated.
I am curious though to see if anyone has ever tried using a Pumpkin Extract instead of the actual Pumpkin in a recipe. I have found several locations for extract (liquid) and might try to brew a batch using it.
Check out their product: http://www.faeriesfinest.com/E154.html
My biggest concern is the loss of body due to using no actual Pumpkin and the overall O.G. obtained during the mash.
Obvious advantage would be no stuck run off.
Anyone have any comments on this possibility?
