I HAVE ONLY BREWED THIS ONCE. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING:
This brew was acceptable but not as crisp as I was looking for. I was very happy with the ginger note, but felt the pumkin pie spike was a bit over bearing. I think I would increase the amount of rice hulls to help with the sparge and also decrease the mash temp to maybe 152.
Unfortunately, I did not review this beer with my normal tasting notes. It was a fair pumpkin beer, but I have high expectations for a pumpkin beer so this was not up to my expectations.
Finally, it was requested that I post this recipe. I do not stand behind this recipe as a great beer. This recipe should be used for reference. It will not produce a bad beer, but I would not expect it to win any awards either.
Cheers, and continue searching!
