Just an update, I found them yesterday at a Whole Foods, the Farmer's Market Organic Pumpkin 15 oz'ers, after going to 2 supermarkets that didn't have them. 2.99 each  :P Picked up a Pumking too!

I used 3 in the mash and one at the beginning of boil. I'll let you guys know how it turns out.

2nd update, after 2 weeks fermenting I gave it a taste, very nice taste, not sure if its pumpkin but its unique, and a lovely orange color. I didn't get any spices though in the nose or mouth so I just made a cup of Bigelow Cinnamon Stick black tea and poured it in while racking to secondary.

Not really relevant but I had a really hard timing trying to crop the Wyeast American Ale from this one, I wash the yeast for my beers and all I got (the way it looks) is green trub. I still poured it into the mason jars and threw them in the fridge, but it doesn't  look hopeful. Not sure what I did wrong.
