1 oz. hallertau -60 min
½ - hallertau – 20 min
5 – min
½ t. vanilla extract
½ t. nutmeg
½ t. cinnamon
1 t. grated ginger
1 t. Irish moss

Mash in grain and all pumpkin at 155ish for 50 min
Separate/Sparge
Boil
Ferment 2 weeks
Secondary 2 weeks
Bottle (late for Halloween but will be drinking nice for a family thanksgiving)

Until you added the spices, it looked good to me! :wink:

Not to mention the pumpkin…
(sorry…just teasing…I couldn’t resist)
:mrgreen:

The pumpkin pie mix does already contain some spices, so make sure you aren’t doubling up on anything (unless you intend to).

Good point!! thanks!!

So I just got this in the bottle on Monday and I think it will be a real winner! I ended up roasting two pie pumpkins for it but that was the only deviation.

Finished up at 1.012 (expected to be a little high with the pumpkin in there0 and had a nice smooth pumping pie aroma but tasted more like a easy drinking ale with only a slight bit of pumpkin and spice.
