Great Pumpkin Ale. Bottling Recommended
This is a great pumpkin ale. The aroma and taste is spot on with what you would expect. I will say its no session beer so I recommend bottling over kegging if you drink as much as I do. It also surprises me how quickly the alcohol creeps up. Great Pumpkin ale!

As good as it gets
My wife and I used to live in Athens GA and go to a microbrewery called Copper Creek. GREAT beer, but their pumpkin ale was far and away their best...would sell out in about 3 days. We moved, and my wife has been on me to try and replicate that recipe. This is THE BEST and (and closest) recipe to that I have been able to do (in 4 years of attempts). I added 2 extra TBLSPS of pumpkin pie spice, soaked in vodka for 3 days first, to the fermenter (I don't do secondaries) one week before bottling. Everything else I followed the recipe on. This is an AMAZING brew, and I just ordered 4 (yes...four) more kits at the request of my wife because it has been made clear to me that this is a beer that we MUST keep on year round. Try this, add a bit of extra pumpkin pie spice, and GET READY...WOW is it good!!!!

Made this with 2.5 cans of organic pumpkin. 3 cans would have been perfect. Waited a few minutes to add the spices until 3 minutes left of the boil. 2 week primary, 6 weeks sitting in (secondary) keg. Carbonated and drank. Tasted great. Just need to add a little bit more pumpkin. The spices were well noticed, no need to add to them.

Brewed this about a month and half ago using two cans of pumpking. Great flavor, however I would add another can of pumpkin next time. Will be brewing this one again in the near future.

I made the AG version. Beer came out really good and has a nice crisp finish. I know this is typically a winter ale, but I find it a great on a hot sunny day. I read the other reviews and decided to use x3 15oz cans of pure pumpkin in my batch. I found that it gives a good pumpkin balance and flavor. Note... there was a poor pumpkin harvest in 2009 and finding cans of pumpkin is very hard. Be sure you can get that before committing to the recipe. I found some cans available at a reasonable price on a health food website. All of my local grocery stores were out and only had the pumpkin pie cans - not pure pumpkin.

Used one can of pumpkin in a grain bag. Pumped up the spices just a little bit with additional cinnamon and nutmeg. Opened one after two weeks in the bottle and it was a little flat. Waited two more weeks and it was great! Served it along with another home brew and store bought at a thanksgiving party and this pumpkin ale was the favorite! Most favored it as there was a hint of pumpkin but not overpowering. Very smooth, nice head. I will definitely brew this one again next fall.

Update: After 2 weeks in the bottle it wasn't quite done. But at 4+ now, it seems to be getting better every day. Spices taste crisp and fresh, and the beer is smooth enough to drink 3,4,6 or more! I'm more of a stout/porter guy but this was one good ale.

I agree with the previous post about adding additional cans on pumpkin, also I think the spices could be pumped up a bit. If I could redo mine I would add 3 cans of pumpkin and a few more spices toward the end. Mine turned out alittle light. I'm learning and this was my 10th brew...so I do blame myself somewhat.

This beer is sitting in bottles right now so I haven't tasted the finished product yet. However, I had so much fun brewing this one that I felt compelled to share how great of an experience this beer has been so far! I baked 3 cans of Libbys pure pumpkin and added to the mash, brought wort up to boiling and added spices the last 10 minutes of boil. While getting the original gravity I sampled it, and WOW!! This tasted better than any beer I've done (before fermentation that is). It had a creamy, full body with a very pleasant aroma and flavor. When I bottled at 3 weeks it seemed to have lost a little bit of that punch, so I added a slight spice tea to the priming sugar. I'll be taste testing in a couple weeks, so I'll check back in to let everyone know how it turned out!
