Pumpkin Ale

Pumpkin Ale blends the spices of the harvest with full-bodied sweetness for a beer that tastes like pumpkin pie. Pounds of pumpkin form a malty foundation that supports the fall flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.

5 Gallon yield, malt extract recipe

 

Ingredients:

 

7 lbs. Liquid Malt Extract

8 oz. Caramel Malt 40L, milled (for steeping)

8 oz. Munich Malt, milled (for steeping)

8 oz. Victory Malt, milled (for steeping)

1 oz. East Kent Goldings hop pellets for bittering (AA=5-6%)

Nottingham Ale Yeast or your favorite ale yeast

Real Pumpkin or Canned Pumpkin and/or your favorite Pumpkin Pie Spices

 

 

Instructions:

 

Heat 2-3 gallons of water to 160 degrees. Turn off heat and (using a muslin or nylon bag) steep the three Malts for 10 minutes, then remove the grains and bring the liquid to a boil. Turn off heat and stir in the malt extracts until completely dissolved. Return to a boil, set a timer for 60 minutes, and add the ounce of East Kent Goldings hops. Add the pumpkin and/or spices the last fifteen minutes of the boil. After boiling, cool to 80 degrees or less and top up with water to just over 5 gallons before pitching the yeast. Aerate well and ferment at 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit.
