Pumpkin Ale

I added my recipe for my pumpkin ale to this site. I have brewed this twice with the same recipe and am really pleased with how it has turned out. It has a really nice balance of pumpkin and spices (not to spicy) and makes a good seasonal beer.

Give it a try and let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions.

  • Though only the second pumpkin ale I’ve ever had, its far better than the commercially available variety. The commercial variety, which is contract brewed here in town tastes like a fairly mild ale (almost a lager) with too much nutmeg and cloves.

    Scott’s does a much better job of using pumpkin. The overall effect is much closer to drinking a pumpkin pie, and less like drinking a spiced tea.

  • I didn’t like the 6 pack of “commercial” pumpkin. I poured out three of them. Would you consider bottling one of yours for me so I can try it? I’ll pay . . .

  • No need to pay (thats illegal…wink). I can bottle one and have Andy bring it in as long as you promise to give me your truthful fair review I’m always curious what suggestions/comments people have about my beer.

  • Sounds great. I like pumpkins so I’ll give it a fair shot.
