"I've tried several pumpkin beers, and they're all vile disgusting things. I think the problem of why I don't like them is they tend to get overspiced, thinking the spice will mellow, when it actually just gets worse. "
are you sure about this? I added my spices in the last 10minutes of the boil, but when i transfered to the secondary, i tasted some, and couldent taste much pumpkin or spices at all. Will they be a lot more noticable later on, or should i add more spices at bottling?
