Batch 41: Pixelated Pumpkin Ale

The original recipe was scaled up to do 7.5 gallons, but I am pretty sure I yielded closer to 8.

Recipe Type: All-Grain
Yeast: WLP001 / S-04
Yeast Starter: No (1 vial and 1 packet used)
Batch Size (Gallons): 8 gallons
Original Gravity: 1.062
Final Gravity:
IBU: 17
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color:  22
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp):

15# Munton’s Pearl (14.5# munton’s pearl, .5# german pils)
1.5# C60
1.5# CaraAroma (subbed for Special B)

1.5oz German Hallertauer 60 min
0.5oz German Hallertauer 5 min
1oz Czech Saaz 5 min

5*15oz cans of Pumpkin, baked at 350* for 1 hour to caramelize

2.5 tbsp generic Target-brand pumpkin spice, 15 minutes

0.75# brown sugar 5 minutes

Cooled as much as possible, split between (2) 5 gallon carboys. One carboy got a vial of WLP001, the other got a packet of S-04.

UPDATE 10/2/14: tasted, waaaaaay too dry (wlp001 FG: 1.005, S-04 FG: 1.007), and the spices are both subtle and not in the ballpark. This is what we get for using generic pumpkin spice. McCormick forever!
