I plan on buying the ingredients for this brew next week and want to do the extract version. So I usually make 5g batches could someone break down the steeping grain changes for me. THANK YOU! !

The volume issue comes up a lot. The reason I made a 6 gallon recipe is to overcome the inevitable massive pumpkin trub. If you want 5 gallons of beer into bottles or a keg, you pretty much need to brew 6 using this recipe.

Why is the amount of spice added to clearing a lot less in the AG version than the extract version. It seems like 1.5tsp for 15 gal isn't very much. Are you really getting that much pumpkin flavor out of the mash?

The 15 gallon recipe calls for 1/2 Tbsp not tsp.

Because spices are strong. It takes very little to get a big effect.

Would it be ok to add half of the pumpkin to the mash then the other half into the boil? Minimize the amount of pumpkin in the mash.
