Hi and thanks for any feedback,
I was planning on to make my own recipe of pumpkin ale as BIAB.
8 lbs Fresh Pumpkin
8 lbs 2-Row
2 lbs Light Brown Sugar
1 lbs Honey
1 oz Mt Hood pellet hop
1.5 Tbs McCormick's Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 Pkg of American Ale as Starter for three days.
Bake cut pumpkin into management sizes in baking pan in oven at 350 degree for an hour and let it cooled off. Mash cooled pumpkin and 2 row at 155 degree with 3.5 gallons of water for an hour. Remove and drain, wash with one gallon of 155 degree water, squeeze the bag to get most water out.
add 2 gallons of 155 degree water, brown sugar, honey and hop. Boil for an hour. at 5 minutes add spices. cool down to 70 degree to add yeast starter and ferment for a week in primary using blow off system, transfer to secondary for two weeks. Bottle with 1/2 priming sugar. drink after three weeks.
Let me know if this would work. My Brewmate program couldn't do with pumpkin as ingredient.
