Thanks for all the replies!
If I boil as normal will that affect the pumpkin? Make the beer cloudy, extract too much flavor, etc...
The recipe calls for pouring cans of pumpkin in the beer but I bought sugar pie pumpkins and I planned on baking it, pureeing it, and substituting canned pumpkin for real pumpkin. Does having canned pumpkin or real pureed pumpkin in the boil possibly affect the temperature you boil at or can I still do a full boil?
If it doesn't affect the pumpkin then I'll just do as normal, steep and then bring to a full boil.
