Default Pumkins???

I'm planning on making a pumpkin ale this afternoon, but when I went to pick up the pumkin I learned that there are different types!! Who'd of thought... Any way, should I just get a regular pumkin or should I get a cheese cake pumkin. The kind lady at the farm stand informed me that the cheese cake pumkin is generally used in pies. Appreciate everyones help

Don't get the big carvin' kind. Get the smaller kind, the one for pies...those have a better taste/texture.

The best flavor wise that I have tried are the white ones. I cook a few pies every year and they are quite good & sweet. The flesh is more yellow than orange.

I went the easy route and used 30 oz of canned pumpkin in the mash. Worked out perfectly. I just bottled, so I'll really know how it turned out in about 2 weeks.
