Pumpkin Head Ale Brewing Extract Kit
The Pumpkin Head Ale is a bold beer with a light coppery orange color. Pleasing aromas of pumpkin and the perfect blend of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Carapils and Caramel 10L keep the colors on the lighter side. Flaked barley adds to the creaminess of the 29 oz of pumpkin in this kit. The delicate spiciness of UK Challenger hops adds balance to the sweetness of the pumpkin. A perfect beer to have after trick-or-treating or have it with your pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving dinner. Makes 5 gallons, or approximately 48 bottles of beer.

We highly recommend purchasing dry yeast during the warmer months. While we offer a complimentary ice pack with all liquid yeast orders, the combination of warmer temperatures and shipping times makes it difficult for your liquid yeast to remain chilled.
Man this one is great, could use another can of pumpkin or maybe some more spices to it. I added a little more cinnamon and just a little bit of honey to give it some more robust flavors and it really paid off. I will be brewing more of this one more often.
