Spookily good, this refreshing weissbier will remind you of everything good about fall. Much like the colors changing with the season, this brew will change in flavor both over the course of the conditioning period, and over the course of drinking a bottle as the brew begins to warm up. Take time to experience the complexities of this fantastic beer while admiring the changing foliage.

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 starch, producing alcohol and carbon dioxide (CO2). This process is called fermentation.

  1. Remove the yeast packet from under the lid of the can of the Bavarian Weissbier Brewing Extract, then place the unopened can and LME softpack in hot tap water.
  2. Using the sanitized measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot.
  3. Bring this to a boil, and add 1 Tbsp. Mulling Spices into the hop sack tying it closed, then trim away excess material, add this to the pan. Remove from heat. Pour the Brewing Extract and LME into the hot water mixture and stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.
  4. Fill keg with cold tap water to the 4-quart mark on the back. cAdd 10 oz. Pumpkin Puree to the keg. 
  5. Pour the wort into the keg, and then bring the volume of the keg to the 8.5-quart mark by adding more cold water. Stir vigorously to mix well. 
  6. Sprinkle Dry Wheat Beer Yeast into the keg. Screw the lid onto the keg.
  7. Put your keg in a location with a consistent temperature between 68°and 76° F and out of direct sunlight. Ferment for 7-14 days.

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 rising bubbles in the liquid, and there will be bubbles on the surface. Cool, eh!?


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 Weissbier is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs a second hop sack Taste is like a mix between pumpkin and apple cider, but the spices seem off. There should probably be 2 Muslin Hops Sacks in this (there is only 1 included; for the spices. the should be a second for the pumpkin); the pumpkin puree had waaaay too much sediment floating on top. I tried a cold crash, but there was too too much puree that got into the final few bottles. I even used a strainer, but still too much while bottling the last ones. This produced about 3/4 of what a normal refill/recipe produces.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't wait to make it again This is the first pumpkin beer that I have ever liked. My only problem is that I didn't do a secondary fermintation. The last 6 bottles (12 oz) have quite a bit of sediment in them, but that is partially because a friend of mine was "helping". The first ones are very clean. Anyway, a secondary fermintation will make for a much clearer product on the final bottles. Definately will be doing this one again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pumpkin winner This beer is fantastic. The suggested lagering time is 2 - 4 weeks, I had to try this one and my lagering time was 2 weeks. Great tasting beer and a couple ofmy friends gave it a try and they even liked this one. I am letting the other 5 lager at least 2 more weeks to see if there is much of a difference. The only thing I did different from the directions was instead of 10 ozs of pumpkin, I did 12

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! I'm not a big fan of pumpkin beers, but this one really hit the spot. It had a light, but diverse flavor to it without being too "pumpkin-y" or overloaded with cinnamon. I caramelized the pumpkin before adding it to the wort (I read somewhere it helps bring out the flavor). I plan on doing this one again next fall, but I might add a yeast strain that's designed for wheat beers.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from All Pumpkin, Little Beer I followed the directions to the letter and when I bottled I lost out on 2 1-2 16 oz bottles because of all the pumpkin puree that went into the bottles. It is a good tasting beer as long as you like mulled drinks. Really disappointed in the amount of beer I didn't get.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pumpkin Weissbier I couldn't find Mulling Spice, so I made my own from an internet recipe and added canned pumpkin. The beer wasn't as flavorful as I expected, though with that said, everyone I shared it with liked it. I'll brew it again.
