Yeah, sparge has taken a good 3 hours now, finally have enough in the pot to get things going. This is my second all grain and I think my patients are spent....... Note to self, don't start a brew so late in the afternoon when you have to work the next morning

This one took me a long time too. Hopefully you haven't been drinking the entire time. I did when I brewed this one and woke up with a headache and angry wife. I think this recipe might be worth it though.

I finally kegged my batch last night so it was the first time I got to taste it. It might could have used a little more spice.. but all and all it tasted great! Of course as I put it into the keezer I learned that I apparently didnt clean the beer line for that keg when I pulled it out a couple months ago. Now I need to float one of my other kegs just so I can fill it with cleaner and easily clean my lines.. or build a beer line cleaner. This weekend I am brewing a Strawberry Wheat!

Default Just brewed 2 nights ago

I brewed this recipe 2 nights ago with 64 oz canned pumpkin in the mash and no rice. I had a little bit of an issue with the mash itself but easily hit my volume with 5.5 gallons of spathe water. OG was 1.060, just a touch lower than expected. The pumpkin pie spice (I used Trader Joe's brand) comes through strong, but I didn't think it was overpowering. I'm hoping that itmellows a bit. Anyone have any thoughts on time in the primary and secondary?

I'm planning on bottling this weekend or early next week. That will be 10 days primary and 10-14 secondary. I'm impatient though. Then 2-4 weeks in the bottle. Need to get a keg system!

I think I was way to impatient, I may have shaken my tun a little hard. My sample came out a little grainy tasting with an OG of 1.072. Color looked good so hopefully when I transfer to the secondary it will clean up a little more

I didnt secondary mine.. but I rarely use a secondary these days. I left it in the primary for about a month.. was nice and clear. It will sit in the keg and condition for another month or so. I am hosting a Halloween party on the 27th and thats when it will get its grand debut.

I made this recipe (with a little extra pumpkin) about two months ago. Overall, I used 64 oz of canned pumpkin in the mash. I ended up using 1.5 Tbs Trader Joe's Pumpkin Pie spice and Sugar in the Raw for priming. I've already sampled at two weeks and have to say that it turned out quite nicely. The pumpkin pie spice is more subtle than I expected (which is a good thing), and it's best served at 50-55 F. Highly recommend this recipe if making an all-grain pumpkin ale

Update.. I had a DFH Punkin left over from last year so I cracked it open last night and did a "blind comparison" of the two. I must say.. very dang close! This will without a doubt become my annual pumpkin recipe!
