Nice work Josh!!! I might very will get BeerSmith now. Been using Qbrew for the Mr. Beer availability in the database. I hope you get compensation for this. At the very least Brad Smith should give you a small percentage of BeerSmith 2.0 sales for all your hard work.
Definitely sounds good Kevin. I agree with Josh you want to cut back on the cinnamon and nutmeg considering they're already components of the pumpkin spice. I'm ready to brew my fall/early winter beer and wanted to see what you guys think. I have a couple of the Belgian spiced ale left to brew this fall. I'm thinking of making a Belgian pumpkin spiced ale. Substitute the spices from the kit for pumpkin spices, mash some oats with two row for body and add some lactose to balance the spices. Ferment with S 58 and see what it's like.
Mine was more tart when I bottled last night. It came out at 9.2%. We'll see if something happens similar to mine where the tartness goes away or how it matures in the next 2 months. But again, I did the Apple Brown Beery recipe.
