scottish pumpkin ale or pumpkin porter
« on: October 12, 2014, 05:29:41 AM »
I like dark beer and want to either make a Scottish ale or porter with pumpkin Im wondering if anyone has any good all grain recipes? This will be my first time making a beer with pumpkin.
Thanks for the help!

5.5 gal batch
5.5 lbs Golden Promise
5.5 lbs Munich 10L
1 lb C40
1 oz Carafa 2 Special
Mash at 156
Boil first gallon of first runnings down to one quart or less (look for bubbles getting silky and stacking)
Add the rest of the wort and boil one hour with 1 oz EKG at 60 min. Wirlflok and nutrient at 15 min.
Chill to 62 and pitch WY1728, set your temp control at 65. Let it ride ~4 weeks. Look for terminal gravity. On packaging day buy a pumpkin. Three weeks after bottling/kegging, carve a thistle into the pumkin and put a blue Christmas light in it. Pour yourself a Scottish 80-/ and enjoy
