Delight and impress your friends with this perfect brew for fall. Smashing Pumpkin Ale is clean and sweetly malty with just enough hop bitterness to balance and no hop aroma to mask the spices in this all grain pumpkin ale recipe. A dose at the shutdown of the boil imbues the beer with a complex, lingering spice profile full of nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger that persists from the pour to the last swish in the pint glass.

Details

Autumn, and a homebrewer's thoughts turn to capturing the sensory experience of the season ... crisp nights, colorful leaves, and ripe gourds being turned into pie. We're often asked for pumpkin beer recipes at this time of year, and it's easy to understand why: sipping this spiced amber ale is like drinking a slice of pie.

Smashing Pumpkin Ale is clean and sweetly malty with just enough hop bitterness to balance and no hop aroma to mask the spices. A dose at the shutdown of the boil imbues the beer with a complex, lingering spice profile full of nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger that persists from the pour to the last swish in the pint glass.

If you want to incorporate actual vegetables in this pumpkin beer recipe, you'll need to purchase an additional 2 or 3 pounds of Rahr 6-row (#G002) and provide your own 8 to 10 pound pumpkin (winter squash like butternut or acorn will work if pumpkin is out of season). Cut up the gourd, discard the innards, and roast or microwave the pieces until soft and cooked through, then peel. Mash the peeled, cooked pumpkin flesh with the 6-row and the included grains at 152°F for 1 hour before sparging and proceeding with the boil.

A tasty brew with warm spice aroma and a dry finish
This was my first time brewing a pumpkin ale, and I will be doing it again. The kit was easy to use, I provided canned pumpkin, and inadvertently overlooked the included pumpkin spice blend (it got tucked behind a flap on the box), so I created my own from 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ginger, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, and a pinch of clove. The spice blend is prominent from start to finish of a glass, but not overwhelming. There is a mild but pleasant bitterness from hops and just a touch of malt sweetness. Overall quite dry - like pumpkin pie without the sugar. Perfect for fall!

can I use canned pumpkin filling ?
A shopper on Oct 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can use NO pumpkin and still brew this beer. I'm using several pounds of roasted real pumpkin. I would suggest that you stay away from anything that says 'filling'. You want plain old canned pumpkin - no their ingredients...
