That just makes entirely too much sense. Thanks, Yuri.

The "tea" refers to boiling the spices in some water to sanitize. The boiling water extracts the spices flavors and you have a sanitized, spice flavored, solution you can safely add.

Cool, thanks. Would it be beneficial to use ground ginger instead of ginger root since it is in a fine powder that will boil well in that "tea"?

If anybody that has bottled this could answer, I know I'd appreciate it.

Sorry for the smart ass answer. Use 5 oz of dextrose to prime a 5 gallon batch.

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?

Salute!
