Thanks pumpkin ale guru! Just wish you'd show up more than once a year. Just kidding, not sure the point of this post. Mine are more complex than yours listed but I guess I have the agree it's not as hard as many make it out to be.

No hard feelings just trying to post the simplicity of the beer - I make it every year - I got the recipe from one of the best brewers in the northeast and its so simple just spreading the simple.

I think the devil is in the details. How MUCH pumpkin? How MUCH allspice/cinnamon? I've seen recipes all over the board on quantity/lbs of pumpkin in a 5gal batch, and one surely wouldn't want to go overboard on the allspice. Since you brew this yearly, do you have some guidelines from experience?

1tbsp cinnamon 15 min
1tbsp allspice 15 min
2-5 lbs pumpkin is fine - you don't get any flavor from it anyways maybe some color

I always check my spice level before kegging or bottling - I added a little more this year

I wasn't trying to sound sarcastic in this post just simplify it and it turns out great.
