How To Brew Pumpkin Cream Ale – Homebrew Recipe Beer

This is my first pumpkin beer. This is mostly an extract-based recipe, though there is a short soak/rest with the pumpkin. This is a conglomeration of different recipes I’ve found & made up my own.

Yield: 5 gallons of beer with an (approximate) alcohol by volume of 6 to 8% (depending on use of brown sugar, corn sugar, amount of pumpkin, etc.)


3.3 lbs Extra Light LME (liquid malt extract)

2.0 lbs Pilsen Briess DME (dried malt extract)

1.0 lb Corn Sugar

1.25 oz Willamette Hops (Bittering)

1.0 oz Willamette Hops (Aroma)

8 to 10 lbs pumpkin (smaller pie pumpkins)

3/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground cloves

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 Sachet Yeast

1 tsp Irish Moss (optional)
