Smashing Pumpkin Ale - Partial Mash or Steep?

Hi,

I’m in the UK so am unable to get the kits here but have managed to source the ingredients separately for this.

One problem is that I want to add real pumpkin (libby’s pure pumpkin from the can) and we cannot get rahr 6-row here for the partial mash.

I was planning to roast the pumpkin for an hour at 350f to try and get more flavour, what would be the best way to proceed from there?

I was thinking of 3 options:

  1. roasting the pumpkin and then adding to the steeping grains bag

  2. roasting the pumpkin and simply adding to the boil

or

  1. Roasting the pumpkin and doing a partial mash as per NB instructions with a substitute for the 6-row.

What would be the best option & if no. 3 what could I substitute the 6-row with ?

Any help appreciated! :slight_smile:

Can you get Chateau Pale Ale malt? It looks like it is higher in protein with higher diastatic power, similar to 6-Row.
