This recipe comes courtesy of the American Homebrewers Association staff brew-team, the Brew Tang Clan.
In true Halloween fashion, the Brew Tang Clan took one of Charlie Papazian's pumpkin beer recipes and twisted it into their own Frankenstien-esque creation. The end result, dubbed "Punkin Head," is a dark ale with a sweet malt backbone complemented by the pumpkin and spices.
This recipe is located in Randy Mosher's book, Radical Brewing: Recipes, Tales & World-Altering Meditations In A Glass. This is one of the many recipes in his book that showcases the seasonal ingredients.
Pumpkin beer is a delicious seasonal style that brings the wonderful fall flavors of cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg into your beer.
Mark Cherney's pumpkin spiced saison earned a gold medal in the 2009 National Homebrew Competition.
