Not a whole lot to say, just bottled the pumpkin ale that I have been brewing. The ale turned out to be pretty cloudy, we’ll see if it clears up a little in the bottle. I didn’t use a secondary fermenter, which would have helped considerably. The beer has more of a pumpkin taste than I had expected, hopefully it doesn’t turn out to be too much. I kind of wanted to get a more pumpkin-y and less spicy beer, since that is not very commonly found.
Another note is that there was a lot more sediment in the bottom of the fermenter than there was when I brewed the Mr. Beer IPA. This is probably due to the increased amount of solids present from both the pumpkin and the steeped grains. I had to tilt the fermenter up a little bit to keep from getting sediment out of the spout during bottling, as can be seen in the pictures.
