Pumpkin PooP Time


Made this one last year in an attempt to clone the Southern tier Pumpkin Ale and came pretty darn close. I decided to tweak the recipe this time just alittle to lower the ABV and will boil the pumpkin instead of mashing it. I had some Amarillo Hops from OBK that I purchased back last October and didn’t even know I had any left in the freezer. I also added a 5min addition of Cascade and will be using WLP001 California Ale yeast. After the yeast has fought 10 gal in 2 separate carboys I will be washing and combining all of it for a Barley Wine which the pumpkin spice and so on should add cool flavour mmmm.IMAG0772 IMAG0773

Still not a new brew so far

Well between me and my wife’s Honey To Do List and the pool deck falling ontop of me twice while I was trying to raise and support it better, I never got to brew any beer since the last brew session entry. I did how ever take heed on a post from CBH and create a Apple Cider with only using US-04 yeast safeale04
and no Sugar additions to see how it turns out. The yeast is recommended by a post in HBT from CvilleKevin who used just about all and any yeast/configuration to create 80 1gal batches of cider and reported his findings. Should only take 3 or 4 days to ferment out then we’ll transfer to secondary for clearing time Cheers.

Oh and another batch of Concord Grape Wine, but except for the cleaning and sanatization these things are very quick and simple to put together.
