I am a big fan of most of the Sam Adams brews, the seasonals in particular. Last year the pumpkin spice ale they had in the fall was fantastic. I couldn't keep any at the house for any extended period of time so I'm looking for something that I can make here at home.

Has anyone tried that brew or have suggestions for a good spicy pumpkin ale? I actually enjoyed the stronger spice flavor in it, has enough of that spice to feel like a fall holiday.

Pretty new to brewing but the couple brews that I have made have been extract. I have a brewer's best irish stout that I plan on starting to be ready for late fall/winter and have the white house honey ale and honey porter that are carbing in bottles right now. I see a pumpkin ale kit on Midwest supplies.

Haven't found much more around than that, I'm open to any suggestions from y'all. Cheers!

I did the brewers best pumpkin porter in the fall (drinking one now). I would recommend that kit. It is a nice mellow porter very smooth and has the best pumpkin spice flavor in a beer I have had. I went around and bought a sample bottle of every pumpkin beer they sold around town (had to tried about 10 varieties, poor me). The kit is really easy, it is just a basic kit with a pumpkin spice pack to season it with. There is no real pumpkin in it but that wouldn't give much flavor anyway.
