Time to Brew!

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.

Read our blog post on how to use real vegetables in a pumpkin beer recipe. 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.

Love it

Really good kit, I always use fresh roasted pumpkin and rice hulls with this. I also add clove, cinnamon, allspice additions after about 2 weeks. I also age in a keg about a month more after the 4 weeks. My buddy asked what brewery his pint was from when I poured 😉😉

Incredible beer. It was my first pumpkin beer and, as usual, NB put together a simple and very tasty recipe. Will have this seasonal beer on tap every year!

Pumpkin Ale

My second time brewing this ale and did a BIAB. Wanted a bit more pumpkin flavor so I added a little more spice. Last time I added some canned pumpkin but skipped that on this batch. Wort may have a been a little warm when I pitched the yeast. I had made a starter with “fast pitch”. At that time I also had the coffee stout and winter warmer at various stages of fermentation. I left it in the primary carboy the entire 4 weeks as I didn’t have a secondary available. Need another 5 gallon carboy for these multiple batches. All this said - I bottled 2 days ago and the taste at that time was just OK and I didn’t notice the additional pumpkin spice. Hopefully after a few weeks in the bottle this will improve. If the flavor is off it’s probably my fault as all other brews I have done from Northern Brew have been great.
