PROFILE:

Good gourd, almighty! This beer has that pie flavor and aroma that has been so elusive in many pumpkin beers. Baking the pumpkin to caramelize the flavors, then adding it and the spices after fermentation is complete, really enhances the flavors so they shine most brightly against the malt back drop. With a thick, creamy head and a lingering spice finish, this is truly a beer with which to celebrate the holidays in style!

STEP 1: SANITIZING

Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions by visiting our help desk.)

NOTE: BE SURE TO SANITIZE EVERYTHING THAT WILL COME INTO CONTACT WITH YOUR BEER. 

STEP 2: BREWING

Brewing beer is the process of combining a starch source (in this case, a malt brewing extract) with yeast. Once combined, the yeast eats the sugars in the malt, producing alcohol and carbon dioxide (CO2). This process is called fermentation.

    1. Remove the yeast packet from under the lid of the can of Brewing Extract, it's not needed for this recipe, then place the unopened can in hot tap water.
    2. Using the measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot, then add in the brown sugar. Stirring constantly until the brown sugar is dissolved, bring water to a boil, then remove from heat
    3. Open the Brewing Extract and pour the contents into the hot mixture. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.
    4. Fill keg with cold tap water to the #1 mark on the back.
    5. Pour the wort into the keg, and then bring the volume of the keg to the #2 mark by adding more cold water. Stir vigorously with the spoon or whisk.
    6. Sprinkle ONLY the Safale S-33 yeast packet into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir. 
    7. Put your keg in a location with a consistent temperature between 59° and 68° F (15°-20° C) and out of direct sunlight. After approximately 24 hours, you will be able to see the fermentation process happening by shining a flashlight into the keg. You'll see the yeast in action in the wort. The liquid will be opaque and milky, you will see bubbles rising in the liquid, and there will be bubbles on the surface.
    8. Your fermentation will usually reach its peak in 2 to 5 days (this is also known as “high krausen”). You may see a layer of foam on top of the wort, and sediment will accumulate at the bottom of the fermenter. This is totally normal.
    9. At the 1 week mark, sanitize your measuring spoon. Spread the pumpkin in a thin layer in a shallow pan and cover the pan with foil. Bake at 350° F for 30-45 minutes until the pumpkin begins to brown and the sugars caramelize, watch it carefully so it doesn't burn. Once the color and aroma is developed turn the oven off and allow the pan to remain inside until cooled to 70°F(about an hour). Once cool, mix the pumpkin pie spice with the pumpkin puree.
    10. Open the lid of the fermenter and gently add the pumpkin, replace lid. DO NOT STIR.
    11. Ferment for 14 more days. After high krausen the foam and activity will subside and your batch will appear to be dormant. Your beer is still fermenting. The yeast is still at work slowly finishing the fermentation process. You’ll ferment for 21 days total.


    Step 3: BOTTLING AND CARBONATING

    Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions by visiting our help desk.)

Pumpkin Rising is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pumpkin Ale I brewed this in October of 2013 and tried it Christmas 2013. It was way better than the swill they called Pumpkin Ale at our local craft brewer-restaurant. I personally didn't like it at the time, but most of my guests at my annual beerfest liked it. There were a couple of pints left over and they "got lost" in the back of the beer fridge. Come June 2014 I rediscovered the lost pints and decided to try one with the BBQ ribs I was making, OMG! Had the long conditioning time made this beer come alive. I'm brewing it again (Feb 2015) to have it ready for my summer brewfest in July. I'm going to tweak it a bit. This is a great fruit beer, just needs a minimum of 6 months of conditioning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good pumpkin beer. Not to bad of a pumpkin spice beer. Needs some tweaks. It says ten ounces of pumpkin but I think its to much. I would go with six to eight ounces of pumpkin. It calls for two teaspoons of mulling spice. I found that the orange peel in the mulling spice is overpowering and doesn't belong in this beer. The spice in pumpkin beer should be like a pumpkin pie with cloves nutmeg and cinnamon. Buy the spices whole and mix together and crush them but not to fine so it stays in your pouch. Over all this beer has great potential and taste great except for the orange in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best My friends and I had tried a couple Mr Beers before but this was the first one with extra steps (using your own pumpkin, etc) so we we’re pretty stoked to try it. We followed the recipe pretty close, ended up using more puréed pumpkin just to account for the amount we would be able to scoop off the foil we covered the pan with. Result was absolutely amazing. We like pumpkin beer and this was on par with Elysian and Lakefront. Definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good pumpkin beer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best beers we've ever tasted! My husband and I are new to Mr. Beer. This was only our second batch, and our first recipe. We love pumpkin-Octoberfest beers and were really excited to try this. On our first sip, our eyes widened and we both had the same thought--this was quite possibly one of the best beers we had ever tasted! We'd like to think it was our newfound brewing skills, but truthfully it was probably the recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Flavor I bought this recipe (Pumpkin Rising) in November, after calculating the time frame for the Super Bowl. It is done. The minimal time frames were only needed for the brewing and bottling process. Although I used glass bottles with some of my Mr Beer plastic bottles. I used the glass bottles before they worked perfectly yet a seal on one failed so it was wasted. SMH! The beer has great flavor had three bottles so far...I think I will only need one for the Super Bowl lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pumpkin Rising is a great brew kit! I'm very happy with Mr. Beer! I've been a Mr. Beer brewer for 15 years now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best For all us regular brewers Mr Beer is simply follow the easy recipes. Cleanliness is key. What made this pumpkin stand out was the spice packet it smells awesome and the use of roasted pumpkin. The fermentation process took an extra week but we’ll worthy the time. The taste is full of great pumpkin flavor so if you enjoy this style definitely worth the cost and effort.
