Smashing Pumpkin Ale All Grain Beer Recipe Kit
Time to Brew!
This seasonal kit is only available for a limited time July to October. So don’t miss the boat. Order now to brew and enjoy this beer during its peak season. Or you’ll be left dreaming about it until next year.
Autumn comes, and a homebrewer's thoughts turn to capturing the sensory experience of the season...crisp nights, colorful leaves, and ripe gourds ready for pie-making. Pumpkin beer recipes are always a hit at this time of year, and it's easy to understand why this one's our favorite. Sipping this spiced amber ale is like drinking a slice of pie.
Delight and impress your friends with this perfect brew for fall. Smashing Pumpkin Ale recipe is clean and sweetly malty, with just enough hop bitterness to balance. A dose of select spices at the end of the boil imbues the beer with a complex, lingering spice profile full of nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger that persists from the first pour to the last swish in the glass.

You'll need to purchase an additional 2 or 3 pounds of Rahr 6-row 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.

I have never had a bad experience with northern brewer before, this time i had a question about a brew i was doing and i had to wait to get an email or text back. Im sorry thats not as helpful as before there was a number to call to talk to a brew master to get an answer right away,that was helpful. To wait for a text or email may be helpful but its more helpful to talk to somebody in stead of a text. You can explain more verbally
I've brewed a pumpkin ale for about 4 years for Halloween. This is my go to kit. Straightforward and forgiving. Usually gets rave reviews from the neighbors. I usually add a little more spices including fresh grated nutmeg and 2 pounds of roasted pumpkin to the mash. Tasty in the keg or bottle.
I was very frustrated when the package came. It was missing the yeast package and so I had to run out to a home brew store over 20 miles away so that I could brew the day I planned. I will no longer be recommending northern brewer to my fellow brewers as I did prior.
Customer Service is the worst
Wife loved this kit! I'm not a pumpkin kind of guy but she thought it was great
