No pumpkin or pumpkin spice was harmed in the brewing of this beer.
My wife (aka the SheppyBrew Beer Model) told me earlier that she didn't want to brew a pumpkin ale this year.
I'm not sure if it was because she didn't like the last one I made or if she got sick of me bitching that the pumpkin spice ale lasted from September to March last time I brewed it.
Regardless, I don't have a problem not brewing a pumpkin spice beer. In fact, I prefer it.
I do really like the name, though. And, I actually have always thought the base beer of my pumpkin beer is really good.
As usual, I prepped the water the night before.
And got the mash started early in the morning.
Most of the brewing was done before the sun came up.
I got a bike ride in later in the day.
