I made a relatively unsuccessful 1gal batch of ginger ale using lemon, ginger, brown sugar and ale yeast. I then steeped with cinnamon, lemon rind and lime rind when it had finished fermenting. It's rather boring, but I'm wondering how I can add some pumpkin flavour and perhaps serve it over bonfire night. Any ideas?

If your lookin for pumpkin pie flavors definitely go with the spices as above, if your goin for pumpkin pumpkin flavor if you can find one now, get a pumpkin, scoop the guts out, cube and bake it for an hour or so. Worked great for my thanksgiving ale last fall
