I brewed following the recipe exactly. I added the pumpkin at 10 min left in the boil. I also pitched 2 packets of the wyeast yeast but probably didn't need to and should've just done a starter. I topped up to just around 6 gallons in the primary fermenter bc I knew I'd lose a lot due to pumpkin sludge at the bottom. This brew had the perfect amt of pumpkin spice taste after 3 weeks in primary (no secondary) and 2 weeks in bottles. Ended up with 7.22% abv.

I'm a beginner and this was my first brew without a kit. I loved this brew. It has been my favorite so far. Easy and fun to make. Absolutely excellent, bold flavor. I liked to trim the glass with cinnamon and sugar for a great pumpkin pie flavor. My only complaint was the amount of waste because of the pumpkin sludge, but it was worth it. I highly recommend this recipe and will be making one of my fall traditions.
