Last night I brewed up my version of Lcasanova's recipe found here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f78/glut...07/index2.html
Here's the ingredient list:
OG: 1.055 and SRM: 4 or 5
6lb BRS @ 60
29oz each of caramelized Pumpkin Pie Filling and Puree @ 30
1 tsp McCormick Pumpkin Pie Spice @ 15
2lb caramelized honey @ flameout
I used a mix of different hops I had laying around for bittering: 1oz Golding, 1oz Willamette and .5oz fuggle. I fear it may be too much for this brew, but we will see. It calculated out to 45 IBU.
I also used a full pound of maltodextrin. Kind of extreme I know, but I've been wanting to experiment with this for a while.
Then the typical irish moss, yeast nutrient and Safale S-04 yeast.
It took quite a while to caramelized the pie filling and puree which I tried initially doing in a deep frying pan. That was a mistake, it splattered EVERYWHERE. Moved it to a stock pot and that was the ticket. As you can see in the picture I got it quite dark.
I went quite a bit farther with caramelizing the honey than I did with the honey noble I made, but I still think I could have gone farther. I have been worried about burning it though.
After the pumpkin was added the wort changed from the hop green to a really nice pumpkin orange, and the aroma was awesome! This is one I can't wait to try!
