While I've never made a pumpkin porter, your recipe looks good. I was going to use Roasted Barley in a recipe I recently put together, and I was warned to not overdo it. Maybe a 1/2 lb. of Roasted Barley would make it a little less astringent. On the other hand, what the hell do I know? Brew that sh!t up and try not to drink all the wart!

Happy Brewing!

Maybe a little chocolate malt to go along with the pumpkin would be nice to if you have it.

agreed, otherwise looks good. I usually do a Pumpkin Porter this time of year and I bake the halved pumpkin and add it to the mash (with rice hulls) and add spices to the boil.
