**All Grain Brewing / Pumpkin weight in water/grain calculation? **

« **on:**August 22, 2016, 01:19:01 PM »

When I calculate the amount of strike water for a pumpkin ale, do I use the weight of the pumpkin in my calculation?

So if I have a 10 gallon grain bill and 4 pounds of pumpkins do I do (14 * 1.25) or (10*1.25).

Maybe I am thinking about it all wrong. I think canned pumpkin is something like 90% water, so maybe I should not be including it in my grain weight but rather including it in the volume of strike water.
