Pumpkin Ale

12 pounds Idapils
2pounds 40L Crystal
58 oz canned Pumpkin
Mashed at 148
2 pounds brown sugar to boil
.6 oz Northern Brewer at 60
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice at 10 minutes,
Fermented on Llammand Bell Saison.

Seems that pumpkin really does stick the sparge! Sparge started sticking 3/4 thru the run-off. Put the first 3/4 in the boil kettle and it was almost to boil when my sparge fibally finished. But there is 5.25 gallons of very sweet wort in the fermenter, may or may not add more spices to secondary. It seems like a winner. By the way, the saison that went in a keg to donate its yeast cake tasted mighty fine!
