Remove from heat

1 tsp of pumpkin spice

Mash Pilsner, and torrified wheat 30 mins at 155 with 2 1/2 qts water

Jay's Hefekin turned out great! He also did a Pumpkin Ale that everyone drank just as fast.

The sweet seasonal flavor of the caramelized pumpkin gives it a great beginning but is not overpowering. The hops are subtle and add enough flavor to round out the overall taste. Jay's Hefekin ends with a nice malty flavor and a great pumpkin aroma. The body on this beer is medium and lends itself to a great head after mild carbonation.

I'd suggest others give this one a try. I will certainly be brewing this one again (with or without Jay).

Thanks for the great brew, Jay!

Thanks Bunk for that review. I think I would cut back just a bit on the amount of spice I used... don't know if I put it in the recipe, but I added another tablespoon of spice before bottling and I thought it was a bit strong. Very drinkable though.
