Punkin Lager

This is the Mr. Beer Punkin Lager recipe, subbing pumpkin spice for mulling spice. 3 weeks fermenting, 4 weeks conditioned. Really tasty -- better than most mid-priced pumpkin beers you'll buy in a store, imo. The pumpkin taste is not overwhelming -- it really tastes more like an oktoberfest with just a bit of cinnamon/pumpkin spice kick to it. A few particles floating at the bottom, but otherwise a very dark amber with perfect carbonation.

I'd say in about three or four of the 16 16 oz bottles I brewed, there was a fair amount of pumpkin puree/trub floating around.  Did not affect the taste, did not make me sick, but did not make for the most pleasant of appearances.  Next year I will cold crash for three days to hopefully avoid this from happening again.
