Smashing Pumpkin BIAB Recipe Kit

SKU# U0135

Flat Rate Shipping only $7.99 only from Northern Brewer

Clean and sweetly malty with just enough hop bitterness to balance and no hop aroma to mask the spices in this all grain pumpkin ale recipe. 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.

All kits yield 3 gallons and include blended grain malts, hops, yeast, and complete instructions. All-grain kits use malted grain as the base for the finished beer; in addition to familiarity with basic brewing techniques and the equipment for fermenting, siphoning, and bottling, you will also need equipment for brew-in-a-bag all-grain brewing.

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 ale 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. 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 all grain pumpkin beer recipe, you'll need to 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 included grains at 152°F for 1 hour.

Deceiving
I have made this twice. The 2nd time kegged, not bottled. Even though the recipe said not to use all the spices I did anyway. I still get zero "pumpkin" flavor. However.....the beer has turned out again to be a quality Octoberfest style. Very smooth, malt forward,almost creamy. Very easy to drink any time of year. BIAB is the way to go.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it really isn't a Pumpkin beer.

A little short on wort
From my understanding, with BIAB, you are not supposed to have to add water... Starting with 4.5 gallons of water and after boil was left with 1.5 gallons. I'm assuming the amount in the recipe is not correct. Should have started with at least 5.5 gallons.

You may need to adjust your starting water volumes based on your boil-off rate. This rate is different for every stove or burner.

If I try brewing this before fresh pumpkins are available, would canned pumpkin pie filling work in my mash?

BEST ANSWER: Yes, it actually works quite well - especially if you roast it in the oven for about an hour on 350 to get the sugars to caramelize. Use about 1 lb per 5 gallons minimum and spread it thin if you decide to cook it (and you definitely should). Other squash like butternut or crookneck also work well as do sweet potatoes. Have fun!
