The Pumpkin Beer Is Born

pumpkin alesWell Ladies & Gents, the pumpkin beer we have been brewing for Thanksgiving is now ready to be bottled and put away to condition.

It’s already tasting fantastic and can only get better.

A nice strong ale on the darker side of amber made with caramelised pumpkin and a little bit of pumpkin pie spices in the background.

It’s a whopping 6.8% so a real winter warmer to keep us toasty through the evening if Hayley and Luke’s range packs in leaving us without heating :0)

It’s one of the new beers we’ve been doing using a method called extract brewing where we actually brew to our own recipe using malt extract, grains and hops to make it just how we want it. Again though the only extra bit of equipment you need to do this is a big stock pot. I’d definitely recommend giving it a try.

The quandary is the name, we have a few ideas but thought we’d open it up to a poll to let you decide.

The poll will open at 7:30 pm UK time tonight and will appear right here.

Place your vote and we will announce the winners here on the blog on October 15th.
