I'm about to brew the all grain version referenced in the article. Here's the recipe, with a few adjustments for my system.

In the article the author says that this recipe has been evolving for the past 15 years. He believes that it is the "perfect" pumpkin ale recipe. He calls it Pocahontas Pumpkin Ale. In the article he does a step mash (I skipped that in my transcription below).

He brews 10 gallons and splits it between ale and Belgian yeasts.
