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.

Click here to learn how to incorporate actual vegetables in this 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.

Excellent -Smashing Pumpkin Ale

I had outstanding results. I added a 15 oz can of pumpkin pie mix at the start of the boil, and used the spice pack as directed in the recipe.
One thing I did that works really well is to mix up some sugar and cinnamon in a bowl, wet the rim of the glass then dip the glass in the bowl to get a nice ring of sugar and cinnamon around the rim ( like salt on the rim of a Margarita)...like drinking a pie! Delicious!

great kit, but stuck sparge

I get nearly all of my kits from NB. And for the vast majority I have absolutely no problems in brewing. I have brewed this one twice and have had a stuck sparge both times... And I don't understand why... Otherwise it is a perfectly reasonable, high quality kit. Instructions are always great from NB. Yeast was fresh and active. Spice packet is potent. Spent grain made some tasty sourdough bread (reuse recycle). When it is fermented out it will probably be tasty.

Not helpful

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

Annual Pumpkin Ale

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.
