This is what I did when I made my first attempt at a pumpkin beer and it worked out really well. I used canned pumpkin in my extract batch. I used full pie pumpkins in my AG version this year. I sectioned them up and sprinkled with brown sugar and cinnamon and baked at 350 for 1 hour. I added some to the mash and some to the boil.

If you are planning to go with canned pumpkin, I highly recommend using a muslin bag because otherwise you may wind up with quite a mess.
