So I finally kegged and bottled the batch. It tastes great. There's a semi sweet spice flavor with a little bite at the end. The extra spice was worth it if your a fan of true spice flavored pumpkin beer. Great color as well. Can't wait to drink more!

Awesome! I also brewed this as my first batch. It will be a week Sunday since I brewed it. How long did you leave yours before putting it in a carboy? How long until you put it in bottles?

Mine was in primary for a month, no secondary, bottled on September 30th. First bottle will be cracked open no sooner than Wednesday next week, just to check progress. Expect it to be ready for Halloween.

I just checked and I'm at 1.020. Today is a week since I brewed. I will let it sit for another week or so before adding to carboy in hope gravity will drop.
