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.

Great kit!

This is a great kit! I added organic 3lbs of roasted pumpkin puree in the mash and an extra tablespoon of pumpkin spice to the end of the boil. Came out very nice with a pumpkin spice flavor that isn't overpowering!

Pumpin pie pastry stout

I got the smashing pumpkin kit and upgraded ingredients to make the pumpkin pie pasty stout. Roasted real pumpkin to put in the mash. Also vanilla beans and cocoa nibs. Four weeks in the Catalyst followed by two weeks bottle condition. I was really impressed with the final product. Beautiful color and outstanding flavor. Great job guys!
