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.

Smashing pumpkin ale

We have brewed this one probably five times or six time now and it always a great hit with everyone even with people that don’t like pumpkin spice anything. Definitely keeping it in the rotation a real crowd pleaser.

Good seasonal beer

It was a little lower on the og both times I’ve made it but great flavor for a thanksgiving beer!

I did this kit as an Extract last season and wanted to do again but All Grain. The Grain bill was largest I've done and it barely fit in my Anvil 10.5 and was nervous of **** it up!!! I added pumpkin puree and honey but the wort came out good but missed OG by a small amount. Fermenting went great, and it turned out to be a fantastic brew.... perfect for the fall gatherings

Instructions (online vs with shipment vs blog we’re all different) were unclear between needing extra grain or not. Beer turned out great nonetheless
