There is a thread over on the mead forum for a pumpkin mead.

Russz, I was thinking about doing a pumpkin wine. This is what I am considering.

15 lbs of pumpkin for a 5 Gal batch
Food Processor
Add your "normal" ingredients like yeast, yeast nutrient, camden tablets, sugar, wine tannin, acid
TO taste I added 2 tbs of pumpkin pie spice
After primary I would put in a carboy with a few cinnamon sticks on some fishing line so you can remove them after a couple of weeks... ( I didn't do this but I might in the secondary)

I am actually planning on doing this "recipe" I just made up lol, in time for next years holiday season, the hope is to get a buttery mouth feel with a soft sweet overtone of pumpkin and spice.

Ill add a new post with more specific directions and pictures, maybe even tonight after I go to the local pumpkin patch with the fam! http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f25/pumpkin-wine-436014/

Nice! No spice flavor added though, would adding the spice flavor not take or something?

You could add spiced flavor using a tincture after fermentation is finished. Typically wine + spices is served as mulled wine.

SO adding spices during fermentation isn't a good idea, is it because the fermentation process is calculated to minimize flavor impact of fermentation?

*Bing searching Mulled Wine*

Not saying its a bad idea. I'm actually doing a cider right now with spices in primary.

Whatever spices you add, do it gradually. You can't get them out once they're in! And they're easy to over do.

What about one of those stainless tea ball deals on a chain? Or are they still too coarse grained?
