Product Details
Autumn, and a homebrewer's thoughts turn to capturing the sensory experience of the season ... crisp nights, colorful leaves, and ripe gourds being turned into pie. We're often asked for pumpkin beer recipes at this time of year, and it's easy to understand why: sipping this spiced amber ale is like drinking a slice of pie. Smashing Pumpkin Ale is clean and sweetly malty with just enough hop bitterness to balance and no hop aroma to mask the spices. A dose at the shutdown of the boil imbues the beer with a complex, lingering spice profile full of nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger that persists from the pour to the last swish in the pint glass.

If you want to incorporate actual vegetables in this pumpkin beer recipe, you'll need to purchase an additional 2 or 3 pounds of Rahr 6-row (#G002) and provide your own 8 to 10 pound pumpkin (winter squash like butternut or acorn will work if pumpkin is out of season). Cut up the gourd, discard the innards, and roast or microwave the pieces until soft and cooked through, then peel. Mash the peeled, cooked pumpkin flesh with the 6-row and the included grains at 152°F for 1 hour before sparging and proceeding with the boil.

Hello, I made this last weekend and as I was cleaning and packing everything up I seemed to have forgoten to add the specialty grains. I did the optional real pumpkin mash and I got side tracked with my 1 year old that can now walk haha. Do you think the beer will come out ok?

Best Answer: The specialty grains provide body, color, flavor and add to the head that forms in the final beer. Without them, those characteristics might be lacking. However, by doing the pumpkin mash you would add some of the elements that the specialty grains would have. In your case, I think the beer will turn out well as it relies on specialty flavorings to get the resulting beer, so should still be delicious.
