Smashing Pumpkin Ale Extract 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 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.

Haven't brewed it yet.
Was a tad disappointed with how it turned out - had a quick start and then stopped fermenting within 4 days. As a result, it only came out to 3.99% ABV, and lacked flavor (even after adding an extra dash of pumpkin spice and real pumpkin to the boil). It kind of tastes like a flat pumpkin seltzer. It's not bad, but it's not what I expected.
Just brewed this today not really sure how it’s going to taste. This was brewed for my daughter that is returning from a year overseas and this is what she requested I guess time will tell.
Awesome packaging but someone forgot my hops
I've brewed several recipes from Northern Brewer and this was by far the tastiest of them all. So good I ordered another kit which is in progress as I type.
