Yuri is (as usual) completely right.
Drink this beer early and often!!
I made the mistake of putting these away in the cellar to condition, then totally forgot about them.
The pumpkin and spices fall out very quickly. =(

Typically pumpkin beers are seasonal and aren't around except for fall/thanksgiving, with the rare exception of a great store. Thanks

I have been seeing a lot of people using grain bags to put the pumpkin in so it doesn't get as messy when when going into the carboy. Are you all adding the pumpkin to your mash and putting it in a grain bag? Or are you boiling it in your grain bag? I'm going to do the extract version soon so I didn't know if the grain bag technique was only good for those doing a mash with the pumpkin? Or if it would be a good idea to do my 60 min with the pumpkin in the grain bag or just freely dumped into the pot?

I threw my pumpkin straight in, and didn't have any problems (other than a lot of pumpkin in the bottom of my kettle, which just rinsed right out, so no problems). No bag.

I used canned organic pumpkin puree, baked in a casserole dish, then added straight to the kettle. No bag. I figure with the puree, a bag probably would have been messier anyways. All the trub settled out in the primary, then i autosiphoned off the top of it into secondary for more settling. It's pretty crystal clear right now. I'll be making another spice tea when i bottle, and will prime it with a spiced dextrose concoction.
