I am kind of new to brewing and recently decided to try brewing my favorite seasonal beer, a pumpkin ale. To do this I bought the Smashing Pumpkin Ale from Northern Brewer as well as 3lbs of Row 6 and a pumpkin as instructed. I am just a little unclear on what I am supposed to do next. They say to boil the row 6 AND the included grains with 3 gallons of water and the mashed up, cooked, pumpkin. My question is, do I let ALL of the grains freely float in the boil or do I put them in the sack as per usual. Also, do I start as if it were boiling water when its time to put the hops and malt in? I just want to be sure I am going about it right beforeI give it a go. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
