Here's what you need to do: You need about 4 lbs of pumpkin for a five gallon batch. Use the crookneck pumpkin, which looks like a huge cashew, not a jack o' lantern pumpkin. Dice it into pieces, place it on some foil covered trays, and bake at 350F until soft, at least 1-1/2 hours. I sprinkle the pieces with brown sugar at this stage. You'll know when the roasted pumpkin is done when it gives gently when poked with a fork, same as boiling potatoes. Allow to cool and scoop out the pumpkin flesh, not getting any skin. Dice the pumpkin up and put it into a large fine mesh bag. Now boil the pumpkin for the entire 60 or 90 minutes. You'll have wonderful color and clarity, no haze trust me. It will be stable for months. Also use the White labs 002 English Ale yeast. It will ferment slightly sweet (which is what you want) and the yeast will drop clear.
