- Tap into your inner barista with this one-of-a-kind spiced ale. What starts as an easy sipping, smooth, creamy stout finishes with subtle notes of coffee and pumpkin spice. The restrained roastiness and mild hop profile make way for this subtle complexity, while still distinctly maintaining its stout identity. Pumpkin Spice Latte Stout pours with an exquisite jet-black semblance and maintains a velvety, crema-like taupe froth. Forget the coffee shop, they have nothing on this unique, multifaceted ale.

- 3.8 / 5.09 ReviewsCoffee DominatesBrewed exactly per instructions. 2 weeks in primary at 66 slowly raising to 68 degrees using a 650 ml starter of Wyeast 1098. 2 Weeks secondary and 2 weeks bottle conditioning. Extremely coffee forward at this point, only a brief lactose sweetness with a distant finish of cinnamon - nutmeg and clove are absent. I would either drop course ground coffee addition to 50% or cold brew coffee and add it at bottling to adjust coffee flavor strength. I would also up the pumpkin spice by 50% or do a vodka tincture as it currently gets lost between coffee and sweetness. There is the bones of a great beer here, it just needs some adjustment.October 8, 2016Too much coffeeAs Aaron said, this is a coffee stout. I don't get pumpkin at all. If I were to brew this again I would add 50% more spice and use 50% less coffee. The coffee flavor may lessen as the beer ages but right now it is too much for a pumpkin spice beer. I think it will be a great coffee stout, just not a pumpkin spice latte stout.September 14, 2016Couldn't take the PumpkinGood beer, had a very strong coffee taste, which was good, but I think it overpowered the pumpkin spice. We couldn't really find any hints of pumpkin spice in the flavor.
I would recommend adding more pumpkin spice yourself to this recipe if you want the flavor to be distinct.February 18, 2017Watch out!"Love this! Recently tried the fresh pumpkin spice from RawSpiceBar to make a few fall inspired recipes and it was definitely worth trying!" https://rawspicebar.com/product/pumpkin-pie-spice/September 14, 2016Good Brew.Good kit, quality ingredients as always, but lacking on the pumpkin taste. Real strong coffee flavor possibly hiding the pumpkin.April 23, 2016SmoothThis is a vary good beer, dark and smooth not a lot of pumpkin flavor but that's ok is adds a sweet edge to the coffeeApril 21, 2016Too sweetTastes like an iced coffee with lots of sugar added. No pumpkin flavor. Will not buy again.May 18, 2016Haven't brewed it yetI'm sure it will be amazing. I will add some things to it but it'll turn out greatMarch 11, 2016
- Browse 5 questions Browse 5 questions and 11 answersDoes the coffee arrive ground? Any indication of a 'potential' final gravity?BEST ANSWER: The coffee was not ground. Whole beans. Not sure of FG. I brewed that before I had a way to check FG. I was brewing just for the fun of it.My final gravity is around 1.030 that seems high to me does anyone know where it should be?BEST ANSWER: When I brewed this recipe mine attenuated down to 1.022. If your yeast has stalled, you may want to try and pitch some healthy yeast to kick start again.What temperature range should this be fermented atBEST ANSWER: Decide on the type of yeast that you're going to use, and then look up the range for that particular yeast from the manufacturer's website. You'll probably find that it's in the range from 65-75 degrees F., although they will have it a bit more narrow than that. IMHO, you're probably okay in that range for most yeasts in a stout, just avoid big temperature swings. In other words, do the entire fermentation at 66~68 and you're fine, do it at 71~73 and you're fine as well.Are there any instructions to use canned pumpkin in this recipe?BEST ANSWER: This kit does not contain instructions for using pumpkin as it is not intended for use with pumpkin, only pumpkin spice.I am planning on buying this with the 1 gallon starter kit. Will the recipe for a gallon brew be included?BEST ANSWER: Hi Shreesh, this kit is for a 5 gallon batch. It is possible to split it down into 1/5ths but it's not ideal as everything is packaged in larger amounts. There's no instructions for making it as a 1 gallon batch, but you could just divide all amounts for malt and hops by 5. You would still want to boil it for the full 60 mintes though. Let us know if you have any further questions.
