Made a pumpkin beer.

Recipe (what's in it):
2row barley
6row Barley
Crystal Malt
Pumpkin Meat
Irish Moss
Spices

The wort was thick coming out. Topping off with water lead to this emulsification. Very strange. Any ideas?

It's fermenting now, which is stirring up whatever that is in there.

Looks very similar to this:

Probably protein layer. Should hopefully settle out!

I personally would be attaching a blowoff tube to that one.

Sorry, but that's awesome. Cool as hell, and I'm sure it's going to settle - it's fermenting, good sign.

That's one heck of a cold break you have there! It should settle out.

That's why people generally add pumpkin to the mash, not loose in the boil.

Yes, only one gallon. Never had pumpkin ale before and I didn't want to make a huge batch and not like it.
