Smashing Pumpkin Ale 2 Gallon 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, 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.
The perfect small batch size for the 3 Gallon FastFerment.

I feel the pumpkin spice flavor did not come through. Overall a good tasting ale.
Still in secondary but tasted it during transfer. One note: I got the two gal kit and used my new 3gal conical fermenter and decided to add roasted pumpkin to the primary. I ended up having to rack it off into 1gal jugs because the pumpkin puree' took up so much volume. Ended up with about 1.5 gals.due to this. So I'd recommend not adding pumpkin in a conical.
If you are looking for that pumpkin spice flavor to knock you out, this is not the recipe. Instead we ended up with a great tasting amber ale, still very nice for the fall season. It had a mild aftertaste of cinnamon and ginger bread, but if you want more punch, I would simply add your own spices to the small amount that is provided. Honestly, the mild spice flavor suited my taste more anyways.
Good beer, I wanted a break from big batch all grain rig. Followed their directions with no changes. Beer actually looks pumpkin in color. The spices did not come through. My wife and I neither one can taste the pumpkin spices. Still a good ale.....
Came out good. I’m an IPA drinker so I thought this was a little tame for my taste. Doing Mosaic next
