Alright, I'm done searching for the answer to this. The extract version has the tea spice addition but the AG version does not. Do you still do the spice addition for the AG version even though your adding the spices to the boil anyways?

Here is what I am going to do. There are spices in the boil. I am going to taste it after it hits FG, then decide whether to add a spice tea or not.

When you add the "tea" to the secondary do you filter out the spice or just add it straight in. I ran mine through my filter funnel and I can't taste much spice, Is this something you will be able to taste with some age on it?

Would love to brew this sometime within the next week. Without reading through all 60+ pages of this thread, is there a final AG recipe with the tweaks and changes that have been made? Thanks so much!

No, not that one (that one was GREAT, but when I posted the recipe I confused tsp and ounces... some brewed that and it wasn't good... I've fixed it since then)

I'm on my third attempt to clone. I don't want to post until Pumking comes out (next week, I think). I'll do a direct comparison and explain the differences.

See the first two posts in the thread. I just updated them to reflect the way I usually brew this recipe.

I don't recommend adding the spices to the boil, but rather using the "tea" method during clearing. Don't strain the tea. The solids will settle in the trub.

I am planning on brewing this in about 2 weeks. I have a question though. The extract version says it is a 5 gallon version, but then below that, it says this a 6 gallon extract + steeping grains recipe. If I decide to do a partial boil, do I top off to 5 or 6 gallons? Hope I am not asking a dumb question here.

It's a 6 gallon recipe. The data above the big bold text is old and unfortunately cannot be edited due to limitations of the recipe database.

I was wondering if it was possible to put the spice tea into the keg and then rack onto that vs in secondary. I typically don't use secondary, but cold crash instead@ 14 days. Also, I have read alot about vanilla in pumpkin beers have you ever added any. If so extract or bean?

You could add it to the keg just as easily. I did that once, and it turned out well. I don't add vanilla to this one. Try it as is. You can always add a little extract if you like.
