No , but I was accounting for 2 pounds of oats, 8 pounds of pumpkin and four pounds of sugar.
Now I think I am going with 6 oz molasses and 2.0 pounds brown sugar.
I have never brewed with pumpkin before, but I would assume that 8 pounds in a mash should yield some fermentables. If I hit 1.065 to 1.070 I will be perfectly happy with it.
