It's a tiny bit of a Martha Stewart I realize, but that is kind of an awesome use of a Pumpkin. I doubt it's something I'll be using this year, but tap that one away for a Halloween someday in the future.
My uncle has a garden that is about an acre in area so we ended up with 12 small-medium pumpkins. Out of 3 I managed to collect 11 1/2 cups of pumpkin for baking pies and maybe if the inspiration takes me a pumpkin beer. If I do a pumpkin beer I am going to try to clone New Belgium's Lips of Faith Kick, which is a blended beer of Sour barrel aged beer and a tart pumpkin cranberry ale. It is freaking amazing. For the West Coast (of the USA) readers I suggest you check it out you can find it using New Belgium's Libation Locator, I had it on draft, but I am sure it will be nice in a bottle too. This is an extremely accessible sour beer, not hard to drink like a Gueuze.
My brother is working to help me polish off the remaining 2 gallons or so of Mac & Jack's Clone in my keg before it gets stale, and because I think it is ludicrous to have more than 2 kegs of beer in my chest freezer. I don't drink beer with any kind of velocity so I need people to come drink with or for me. In particular the friend of mine that was going to start making beer with me decided to stop drinking while his wife was pregnant and hasn't started again now that the baby is here, so the person that I was sort of expecting to drink with me often is not playing anymore.
