I did my first Pumpkin ale last week:
4.5 lbs two row
1 lb munich
0.5lb Crystal (60L or 80L, not to sure)
OG = 1.064 (hit dead on)
FG = 1.016 (i think the actual will be lower by a bit based on last night's gravity reading)
90 minute boil
at 90 - a little over 2lbs of pumpkin puree
60 min - 0.5oz northern brewer 9 AA
30 min - 0.5 oz northernbrewer 9 AA
10 min - 1.75 Tsp cinnamon and 0.75 Tsp nutmeg
used Safale S-04 (for the first time)
I didnt realize till after the boil that the hops where much higher AA% than originally thought (I thought Northerr Brewer was closer to 7 AA) so I was worried about the bitterness. Took a sample out of the fermenter last night, tastes great!
this is my first time trying a "non-standard" beer so i'd appreciate any thoughts.
I don’t care what the U.N. says, I don’t recognize countries that don’t produce beer.
