USed the Wind River Brewing Gopher Pale Ale. They sell this much cheaper for some reason.
This is my first pumpkin beer. Process was as follows:
1- Take 1.5 cans (30 oz per can) of libby pumpkin. Spread out on tin foil lines baking sheet. Sprinkle pumpkin pie spices lightly on top (1 tsp). Bake 30 mins @ 350, till darker, then ‘rake’ and bake 10 more mins.
2- Take steeping grains, crushed 2 row, and pumpkin and put in 2 gallons of warm water. . Bring to around 155 as best you can and keep it there for 55 mins.
3 – Run mashed mixture through sieves to get clear-ish wort from mash. Will be sticky and tough to do right. I used the muslin bag over a colander, on top of a triple layer of cheesecloth on the BBQ shrimp colander over a 5 gallon paint strainer bag. In the end, I dumped it all in the paint strainer bag, then took the bag out and dunked it in 1.5 gallons of hot water to sparge. Added hot water to runnings and brought it out to the kettle.
4- Topped off to 6.5 gallons and got kettle up to a boil with the turkey fryer burner.
