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

    Cleaning is one of the most important steps in brewing. It kills microscopic bacteria, wild yeast and molds that may cause off-flavors in your beer. Make certain to clean all equipment that comes in contact with your beer by following the directions below:

    1. Fill clean keg with warm water to line mark 1 on the back, then add ½ pack (about 1 tablespoon) of No-Rinse Cleanser and stir until dissolved. Once dissolved, the solution is ready to use. Save the remaining ½ of No-Rinse Cleanser because you will need it for bottling.

    2.Screw on lid and swirl the keg so that the cleaning solution makes contact with the entire interior of the keg, including the underside of the lid. Note that the ventilation notches under the lid may leak solution. Allow to sit for at least 2 minutes and swirl again.

    3.To clean the spigot, open it fully and allow liquid to flow for 5 seconds and then close.

    4.Pour the rest of the solution from the keg into a large bowl. Place your spoon/whisk, can opener and measuring cup into the bowl to keep them cleaned throughout the brewing process. Leave them immersed for at least 2 minutes in cleaning solution prior to using.

    5.After all surfaces have been thoroughly cleaned, do not rinse or dry the keg or utensils. Return lid to top of keg, proceed immediately to 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 can of Brewing Extract and pour the contents into the hot mixture in your pot. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.

    4. Fill your fermenter with cold tap water to the mark 1 on the back. If using any other fermenter this would be approximately 1 gallon of water.

    5. Pour the wort into your fermenter, and then bring the volume of the fermenter to mark 2 by adding more cold water. (If you have a different fermenter top it off with cold water to the 8.5-liter mark).

    6. Stir your wort mixture vigorously with your sanitized spoon or whisk.

    7. Sprinkle the S-33 yeast packet into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir.

    Put your fermenter in a location with a consistent temperature between 65° and 76° F (20°-25° C), and out of direct sunlight. Ferment for 14 days.

    STEP 3: Adding Extras

    Adding extras is the process of adding additional ingredients to a beer which will impart more flavor and aroma in your finished brew.

    1. 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 and carefully add into your fermenter. 

    STEP 4: Bottling & Carbonating

    After 14 days, taste a small sample to determine if the beer is fully fermented and ready to bottle. If it tastes like flat beer, it is ready. If it’s sweet, then it’s not ready. Let it ferment for 3 more days (17 total). At this point it is time to bottle. Do not let it sit in the fermenter for longer than 24 days total.

    1.When your beer is ready to bottle, fill a 1-gallon container with warm water, then add the remaining ½ pack of the No-Rinse Cleanser and stir until dissolved. Once dissolved, it is ready to use.

    2.Distribute the cleaning solution equally among the bottles. Screw on caps (or cover with metal cap if using glass bottles) and shake bottles vigorously. Allow to sit 10 minutes, then shake the bottles again. Remove caps and empty all cleaning solution into a large bowl. Use this solution to clean any other equipment you may be using for bottling. Do not rinse.

    3.Add 2 Carbonation Drops to each 740-mL bottle. For 1-liter bottles, add 2 ½ drops; for ½-liter bottles add 1 drop. Alternatively, you can add table sugar using this table as a guide

    4.Holding the bottle at an angle, fill each bottle to about 2 inches from the bottle’s top.

    5.Place caps on bottles, hand tighten, and gently turn the bottle over to check the bottle’s seal. It is not necessary to shake them.

    6.Store the bottles upright and out of direct sunlight in a location with a consistent temperature between 70°-76°F or 21°-24°C. Allow to sit for a minimum of 14 days. If the temperature is cooler than suggested it may take an additional week to reach full carbonation. 

    Tip from our Brewmasters

    After the primary carbonation has taken place your beer is ready to drink. We recommend putting 1 bottle in the refrigerator at first for 48 hrs. After 48hrs. give it a try and if it is up to your liking put the rest of your beer in the fridge. If it does not taste quite right, leave the bottles out at room temp for another week or so. Keep following this method until your brew tastes just how you like it. 

    This process is called conditioning and during this time the yeast left in your beer can help clean up any off flavors. Almost everything gets a little better with time and so will your beer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Jstro 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by GeneT from In process. I just got the pumpkin rising in the brew keg last Monday so I dont feel qualified to do any rating. I have the Classic American Light in another brew keg and will get it in bottles next week. What day depends on the taste test. I will have to write another review soon. Thank you Mr. Beer. Did I mention thaat I like beer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Dragonc1105 from Pumpkin Rising I made this recipe not too long ago to match the Thanksgiving season. Overall, this recipe is outstanding. Love the flavor and texture. The only negative I have is maybe less mulling spices. The after taste was a little strong for me. My friends thought it was awesome. I will make this again...I'll just cut back on the spices!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Clcowboy from Very spicy! This was a great recipe. The longer you let it sit to age the better it tastes. Very spicy. Make sure that you get your pumpkin baked to let out the sugars. Wonderful beer for the fall season. Recommend for Halloween for the adult trick or treaters!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Fporch from A Tasty, Smooth Beer Good All Year This recipe, with its caramelized pumpkin, yields a much better beer than recipes that call for soaking the pumpkin in a brewers bag. A bit of bottle aging also enhances the flavor. A good beer!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by Agave from Not bad if you like a spicy beer Frankly, I’ve brewed better beers. The spices overpowered the pumpkin even though I used more than suggested. However, on a wintry day, this beer warms you up.
