I was gonna say... That's only a pumpkin a mama can love.... I'm gonna waffle.... A bit... I'll get more apple juice and do a ferment in mine... I'll get a picture tomorrow... Sneezles61
Yes my wife came home and said that's a pitiful looking pumpkin. Worts and all volume 6
Some experiments from election day. Be awhile for the "Bock to Normal" only fitting I suppose
Whoa... Balloon throw back from the past! My experiment was thwarted for a few days... Sneezles61
Was set to mess around with my pumpkin and apple juice... Picked up the pumpkin and my fingers went right into my pumpkin... Sneezles61
Hopefully it didn't get oxidatioin I did rack it before it finished and I had added brown sugar. I'll taste it
Tastes alright still yeasty. I added more nutmeg because I only added a little before.
It is... Perhaps the pumpkin reflected the light to make it... lighter? Well since I don't have a pumpkin... Maybe use a squash? Sneezles61
Definitely darker, you should have used your magic wand to transfer out of your Harry Potter pumpkin.
Good idea its tricky transferring beer from a pumpkin shell
It's still fermenting tastes a bit alcoholic. Going be interesting anyway. Can anything really be called a waste of time during a pandemic with nowhere to go.
The main event on election day the Bock to Normal is taking a D rest while I crash the Bass Ale
Update on the pumpkin ale that I fermented in the shell. It's bottle conditioning for 10 days so I gave it a try today. No oxidatioin,nice spice aroma. Not nutmegy. Needs more carbonation so I'll let it go longer
7.5% I think I can work with this. I think it can be a nice holiday ale. Next year I'll make 5 gallons and maybe use my home grown hops. I'll need a bigger pumpkin or use 2 and blend
Bock to Normal has been lagering going to put it on gas and maybe tap 1/20
Well, I'll need to alert myself next year with the pumpkin business... My pumpkin..."wet" the chair... badly too.. My bock is about fried... No will on my part... Sneezles61
Update on my other election day brew the Bock to Normal. OG .070 . A month later December 5 it was at .020 now 6+ weeks it's at .014 I'm going to call it done and move it to the cold. Taking it's sweet old time.
