Our original Pumpkin Ale recipe is a great beer for the holiday season, and features a mix of light dry malt extract along with caramel and victory malts and includes the pumpkin spice you'll need for this batch. You'll end up with a pronounced pumpkin flavor and a crisp, clean finish. 

This pumpkin spice beer recipe is a homebrewer's "go to" when the fall comes around, and we recommend trying it out and save some to share some with your friends and family over the holiday season. 

*See below for further instruction on using a real pumpkin instead of the included pumpkin spice for your pumpkin extract beer recipe.

All orders containing Liquid Yeast will be shipped with a complimentary ice pack to ensure safe shipping!

    Great Pumpkin Ale!

    Posted by Jeff White on Jan 14th 2021

    Brewed with a fresh pie pumpkin. Highly recommend using a fresh pumpkin in the mash and using just a teaspoon of the pumpkin spice provided in the kit. Very tasty and drinkable and my friends really loved it. Great for fall and winter beer drinking!

    I got my ingredients quick. The instructions were simple enough to follow. So far, so good. I took a little sip of the brew while transferring it from the primary to the secondary fermenter, and it tasted fine. Can't wait to bottle and drink it.

    The kit shipped out quickly. Very easy instructions. It is brewing as I write this. I have tried to make pumpkin ale before. This one looks and smells great in the carboy. Can't wait to bottle it and drink it.
