ahahah great!! It looks great! I hope I'll succeed to! The only thing is that I already purchased my gingerbread ingredients...I will follow the way mentioned in Radical brewing from Randy Mosher! It's pretty the same has yours: 1 tsp cinnamon, .5 tsp groung ginger, .25 allspice and .25 cloves! He mentioned to add all at the end of boil! I'll follow your recipe and add this for the gingerbread taste!

Hope I'll succeed to! It should, it looks pretty much the same!

Got the gingerbread kit from adventures in homebrewing it has pumpkin spice in it not gingerbread spice; is this right?
I was thinking of adding 1/2 cup molasses for more of a gingerbread taste, what do you think.
Anyone else brew this one and have a comment?

The beer recipe I posted turned out great!!! It has a good bready taste with a hint of ginger and spice. I also hit my gravity numbers, so it's right around 6.7%

The only difference in my pumpkin recipe vs. my gingerbread was that to make the gingerbread the allspice was 3x more, the cloves were 1 additional clove, the nutmeg was omitted, and the cinnamon was reduced by half

Awesome! I'm interested to hear how it turns out.

Thanks for the recipe, Topher79.

I wanted to do a version of this using all grain so I was hoping someone could give it a once over and let me know if it looked good. I also subbed the Palisade hops for Cascade and the Scottish Ale yeast for Nottingham as I have those on hand.

Grain Bill:
5.5 lbs 2-Row Pale Malt
4.5 lbs Munich Malt
1 lb 2.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt 10L
1 lb Victory Malt
10 oz Special B Malt

Hops:
1 oz Cascade 6.2% AA [60 Min]
1 oz Cascade 6.2% AA [10 Min]

Adjuncts:
1 Whirlfloc tab [15 Min]
2 crushed cinnamon sticks [7 Min]
6 crushed cloves [7 Min]
12 crushed all spice pods [7 min]
1 oz grated ginger [7 min]

Yeast:
Danstar dry Nottingham

Batch Size: 5.25 G
Efficiency: 75%
OG: 1.064
Est FG: 1.014
Est ABV: 6.6%
IBUs (Rager): 26.1
Color: 17.3 SRM

I think the hop substitution will be okay, but I think the Scottish Ale yeast would provide more of a malty flavor. Have you brewed this yet? If so, how did it turn out?

I am not too sure on the grain bill, as I am still in the extract realm.

Also, I am still drinking this one, and it is developing nicely. I added my ginger too early, so I have been waiting for it to mellow out. I still have 11-12 bombers, and plan on bringing them to family over the holidays.
