This year I tweaked the Mr. Beer Punkin Lager recipe a little bit by subbing pumpkin spice for mulling spices, adding 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and the zest of one orange. Did the standard 3-4 method, cold crashing for two days since last year a few of my Punkin Lager bottles were extra chunky. Tasted fine, just not the prettiest brew.
This came out as expected -- a little spicier than the standard Punkin Lager recipe. The orange zest is VERY subtle -- perhaps if I do this one again, I'd do the zest of two oranges for a little extra kick. Otherwise, a perfect autumn brew. Even with cold crashing though, some of my bottles had some of the puree floating around -- not as bad as last year, but I suppose it just comes with the territory when making this recipe.
