Cargill's German Saltzgitter pilsner malt for the 1.005 vs. Bestmalz pils for the 1.012.
I bet that contributed some. I get different efficiencies from different malts. So, stands to reason there would be differences in fermentability also.

Plan is for 10 gallons of saison. Been talking about it for months and it's getting awfully late in the season, but am sure it will be great for fall as well. 5 gallons will get blackberries and 5 will get some fresh picked lemon balm in secondary.  Both will get a 2-1 dose of 3724 to 3711. Fingers crossed, last year's batch with raspberries caught an infection (thinking it was the short freeze for the berries) it's still getting better slowly, but I was advised by Siamese Moose to let it sit until October  (I've had 2 or 3 since he tried it last November) Blackberries have been frozen for over a month. Got a couple interested parties coming over to watch/help out on brewday

Going to brew a pumpkin oktoberfest again. Last year I liked it so much I think it may be a regular fall beer for me. Basically an oktoberfest with a little pumpkin in the mash and spices at the end of the boil. Good stuff.

Sounds good. I have been doing pumpkin versions of beers I grew regularly. Last year it was an altbier and this year I think I am going to go with a pumped up version of my brown ale.

Summer Ale / XPA #6 / Spiced Baltic Porter / Pale Lager

Nice. It's good for me because it's a blend of my two favorite fall styles.

You just reminded that I have been wanting to try out an Imperial milk stout with pumpkin. Sounds like a chocolate milkshake with an autumn twist to me.
