Wyeast Dennys fav 50 yeast. If you use anything else you are seriously just wasting your time. I have tried the same brew with 4 different strains and the DF50 is the best hands down. (unless it is a yeast specific brew like a wit or Belgian.)

The fast turnaround time due to using a "session series" brown from AHS, how effing DARK it turned out, the extra cinnamon I put in (last 2 reasons why I call it Cinnister Punkin Ale), the fact that I made it, and the fact that not one person (BMC drinkers or otherwise) have not liked it. And it's the second batch I ever brewed. My confidence needs a blow off tube!!!

But seriously, I have to thank the people and advisers that have posted so much info before I ever dreamed of brewing myself. Thanks again guys and gals!!

Will be a 2liter starter by Saturday and will probably start ignoring me, think he knows it all and end up knocking up some skanky belgain strain before I know it." ~BigTerp

I used a english brown ale as a base and boiled down 2 big cans of pumpkin, strained it and added the spices. Then I Poured in the juice after the boil. Its in the fermenter now, so I havent tasted it but it smells wonderful. LOL
