Gator Tears' 'Arry Porter Beer being brewed for Adepticon 2018

Hey everyone! As you know, I homebrew a couple of beers now and then. I always like to bring one of them to Adepticon for people to try out. This year I delayed (see: got lazy and didn't do it in November) my pumpkin beer, 'Arry Porter, so I decided to brew a batch for Adepticon.

Here is the recipie:

3 lb - Dry Malt Extract - Dark (31.6%)

60 oz - Pumpkin, Time: 60 min, Type: Flavor, Use: Boil
2 tbsp - Pumpkin Spice, Type: Flavor, Use: Secondary

Safale S-04 Dry Yeast

Now I caramelize the pumpkin for about 10 to 20 mins at 350 degrees. This gets the pumpkin flavor a little more into the beer. I did have one little mess up where the yeast I was going to use (wyeast's British ale) dead so I flipped to the Safale dry yeast that was easily accessible. This year I am also using true pumpkin spice instead of my own mixture so we will see how that turns out.

In honor of our new podcast, Quantum Beer Break, 'Arry Porter will be renamed Quantum Beer for Adepticon!
