The following Punkin Ale Recipe was fowarded to me by Dana Encarnacao (uunet!!DANAE).

I reccomend that you leave the clove out of the recipie. When I drank my first bottle, and almost to my last bottle there was a strong taste of clove. I think it would have tasted better without it. My opinion.



Bring to a boil 1 gallon and 1/2 water and pumkin meat. Add 2 cans of malt, 1 and 1/2 oz. Mount Hood hops, and Burton Salts. Boil for 45 mins. then add Irish Moss, and finishing hops. Boil for another 15 min. Sparge into 3 and 1/2 gallons of water. Let cool and pitch yeast. Transfer to secondary fermenter at same time add all of your spices. When fermentation is complete shipon, carbonate, and bottle. (After you siphon give a gentle shake to mix spices around)
