i made a pumpkin pale extract and have a decision to make. I used 60 oz of pumpkin puree, spices and a pale ale extract as a base. It's fermented out but i have 4" of trub on the bottom. I expected a little more than normal however now I'm wondering if I should rack into another carboy and top it up up to the 5 gallon mark. I don't want to water it down but if I rack off what i have, I might get 40 bottles.
Whats everyones thoughts? I tried the brew before pitching the yeast after checking the gravity and it was sooo good other than being extra sweet which i fully expected.
I think what I should do is siphon off a bit, and taste it.... if it tastes fine maybe i should rack it into a bottling bucket and bottle as is and take the loss as part of the production. Thoughts?
