Another pumpkin ale recipe (Pumpkin Spice Ale)

Interestingly, my recipe for pumpkin ale from way back in 2004 is the number one result on Google for the search “pumpkin ale recipe”—this time of year I always see the search numbers spike (for good reason). I’ve bragged about this before (yes, I do that from time to time) but I certainly don’t mind pointing to other recipes on the web that sound good.

Thus, the posted Pumpkin Spice Ale recipe over on It’s similar to my own, though they use less pumpkin, and they have more detailed, exacting directions on the mashing of the pumpkin and grains together. (Mine are a bit vague in this area.)

I also like the use of whole cloves in this recipe. I don’t have cloves in mine. I may have to steal that one.

    Hey thanks for the recipe, I’m going to try this one. We just tried Buffalo Bill’s Pumpkin Ale & were not pleased. Been reading through your posts and really enjoyed them. We would love to have you stop by my husbands blog & let us know what you think.
