Best fresh pumpkin for pumpkin beer?

I’m going to try a pumpkin beer by roasting a pumpkin for 2 hours covered in brown sugar. Any particular pumpkin that’s tastes best? I prefer a strong pumpkin taste in pumpkins beers. My favorite one is Schlafly’s pumpkin beer. Thanks!

Use the small baking pumpkin not the oversized jack-o’-lantern ones. You can use the butternut squash I’m told by a baker they give a better flavor

I’m with @brew_cat, use the pie pumpkins. They are not available in stores by me yet but I’m looking out for them any day now to brew my annual batch.

Modified Smashing pumpkin brew day here! Figured I’d post up some pics. My house smells amazing today!! 2 pie pumpkins in the mash, 2 in the last 20 mins of boil.

I’ll bet it smells good.

Looks good. I also made a pumpkin beer last week. Cooked pumpkin for 2 hours first and then 90 minute mash. Smells great. I think I’ll add another small amount spices at bottling
