This was an awesome beer! Directions were easy to follow and I thought it turned out fantastic. Exactly what I expected. The amount of pumpkin to be added differs from online to the written instruction, but thatís the art of beer making!
I have been brewing pumpkin beers every year for my fall main beer. Every year I try to do a different style of beer for it. So I decided to brew this one. Description of beer was great just what I wanted. Instructions were great. Process was easy. Followed instructions to the letter. Did not alter ingredients at all. Even let sit for minimum of 4 weeks after bottling. Really hard to let it sit anticipation on this one was growing every week. As it smelled good and tasted great before bottling. Opened the first on the other day. Smell was ok, carbonation was good, color was as expected beautiful orangey brown. Took my first sip and just about threw out the whole bottle. Turned out bitter, no taste of pumpkin, kind of tasted like a bitter sour beer. Will let sit for a couple of more weeks and see if this might improve. As a mead maker I know things do improve with time. Not so sure this one will.
