You got it! Yes even on the Norm Wiki page it's mentioned that Morn is a tribute to Norm, though Morn never speaks. Or the viewers of DS9 never see him speak.

Has it been so long that DS9 is starting to slide out of memory? It ended in 1999. Maybe I'm getting old Oops


There's probably da rules that prevent me from giving you the Astero BP though. That means it's still "up for grabs". Hmmmm what to do with it....

It's crazy that I didn't get it sooner considering that in the past month I've been rewatching TNG and DS9 :D

Who's starting their Pumpkin Ale? Real pumpkins or can? I'm going the more natural route. Not on the market yet but I'm just prepping some recipes.

Starbucks' PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte) seasonal release is one of the best times of the year.

Why?

Not because of that fat and calorie bomb. It means that it's almost time for Southern Tier's Pumking seasonal release! Big smile

~

I just moved to the South, so they're trying to force Abita Amber down my throat like it's more precious than water. And, I mean, it's okay. Skip Purple Haze, though; there's something funky about it, and I don't normally mind fruity beers for a switchup.

So far as regionals go, I'll always have a little bit of Christian Moerlein pride. The Barbarossa Double-Dark Lager is a strange and exquisite taste that I recommend, and their Northern Liberties IPA is solid enough to stand up in the crowd of the more popular IPAs. Overall, Cincinnati's trying to rebrand itself as a beer city, and if they can get the legal entertainment district established at the Banks (meaning one can walk around outside with beer, a la the French Quarter in New Orleans), it'll swiftly rise in that esteem. There's already a number of stellar breweries in that area; I should seriously consider freelancing a "beer tour guide" for visitors.

~

If you really want a unique experience, mix Southern Tier's Choklat Stout with Rogue's Chipotle Ale (half and half works fine) for an Aztec-Mocha Beer that's out of this world. Place where I worked had both on tap, and we found the Choklat by itself was too thick and heavy—it's hard to even tackle a pint by oneself (I'd normally consider that a "challenge issued," but beer challenges are for college bros). Cutting it with chipotle ale lightened its heaviness and added a spice to the chocolate that made it hellishly decadent.

~

So far as more "staples" go (since most everything I've listed, Abita aside, has been seasonal or switch-up), Bell's as a brewery has yet to let me down with anything they've produced. Moerlein's Helles Lager is solid, and I've already mentioned Northern Liberties for the colder seasons. And then, there's always PBR for when I feel like hating life.

Hmmm Pumpkin Ale... now would certainly be the time to make it. A month from start to bottling, a few weeks to age, then a Halloween party to get totally bombed on the stuff.


Trouble with Pumpkin Ales, I find, is that they are not dark enough. What I would really like to see is a Pumpkin Porter or Stout. Anybody got anything like that?

Beer has to be so dark that not only should light be unable to escape it, but bad ideas falling within the event horizon should also never see time. It's best to just drink and not come up with dumb ideas while doing it, and I've observed that in countries where the beer is very strong, nobody dies with their last words being "watch this".


So - Pumpkin STOUT/Porter! The darker the better. Bring it on!

A molassesy, treacly pumpkin porter might be pretty good actually. I've only ever tried an 80 shilling pumpkin ale, Scottish traditional variant, that wasn't dark at all.

"molassesy, treacly pumpkin porter..." Yep that's what I have in mind. Back in 2008 I raised an entire field of pumpkins on a friends farm that he was not using much. Most of them I gave away to whoever wanted them but I still had a truckload of pumpkins to deal with. I got very very good at pumpkin pie. So when I'm thinking of a dark porter or stout, I'm thinking of that flavor from the kind of pie that is made from brown sugar and a little too much cinnamon and ginger. Twisted

Never had I an original idea in my life -meaning that what I'm after exists - I'll check with the other brewers on this. The brew supply store has a (physical) bulletin board where they post their recipes.

Molasses is an ingredient I've used before. There was a recipe called Bourbon Stout that entailed using oak chips soaked in Maker's Mark left in the secondary of a mostly basic stout. I took that recipe, soaked the oak in Goslings Black Seal rum instead (and Bacardi 151 later on), took the Stout recipe and added 2 lbs of molasses to it. Such a beer has been seen before back during prohibition when barrels normally used for aging rum were taken and used to make beer. The addition of molasses makes it darker and stronger. So ultimately the pumpkin brew WILL have molasses as it's a rather "forgiving" ingredient.

OK so this one from here is touting "pumpkin pie in a bottle" - but is this dark enough? I like my Halloweens dark you see.

Pumpkin Ale

This beer is a seasonal favorite. It dates back to a time when real beer ingredients were rare and people played a game called “Will It Ferment”, and this one did. Surprisingly, this beer is pretty good, like Pumpkin Pie in a bottle.

7 lbs Light Malt Extract
6 lbs Pumpkin Meat
1 lbs Carapils Malt
1 oz Cascade Hops 7 HBUs (Boiling) 60 min
3/4 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Ground Cloves
1/4 tsp Ground Ginger
1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
Wyeast American Ale Yeast

For Bottling:
1 1/4 cup Dry Malt Extract Or 3/4 cup Corn sugar



Add the cracked Carapils Malt to 2 gals. of cold water and bring to a boil. Remove the Carapils Malt and add the LIght Malt Extract then bring back to a boil. Add 1 oz Cascade hops. Boil for 30 mins. Add 6 lbs of Pumpkin Meat. (see preperations below) Boil for 20 mins. Stir often. Add the Ground Cinnamon, Cloves, Ginger, and Nutmeg. Boil for 10 mins. Sparge out the hops and pumpkin (it will be messy) and add the wort to the fermenter with enough cold water to make five gallons. Add yeast when temp reaches 70º. After 7 days transfer to secondary. Let age in secondary for 1 week then bottle or keg.

For bottling, use 1 1/4 cup of dry malt extract or 3/4 cup of corn sugar boiled with 2 cups of water added in the bottling bucket. Age for 2 weeks.

Pumpkin preperation: Use an 8 lb pumpkin. Wash off the dirt, cut it in half, and remove the seeds and stringy muck. Peel the outer rind and cut the meat into 3” pieces. It’s now ready for the boil.


I suppose dropping to 5 lbs light malt extract and replace it with 2 lbs molasses might do the trick?

Without knowing what color profile molasses imparts in that kind of solution (and I've never brewed with extract so I don't know that either, but since it says light I'm going to assume 2-row/maris otter style), I would think this would have a very light color profile, along the line of a pale ale. That's assuming that you're talking about Weyermanns Carapils, which is Dextrine and gives no real flavor or color, just good body and superior head retention, as I understand it.

That really doesn't seem like it will end up as dark as you'd want. If you wanted colour over body, even 300g of Carafa Special I will darken it tonnes, with the body of the molasses behind it, that might be amazing.

My favourite style of beer is IPA with the following being drunk if available

Marstons Old Empire Pale Ale
Youngs Golden Zest

However if I am watching the football during the week I will stick with a few pints of Fosters as I know what its going to do to me and how much I can drink. If its a weekend I enjoy trying out the guest ales that my local pub puts on. The landlord keeps a good pint and always has a couple of unusual ones on tap.

A few years ago I got into home brewing and after trying a few kits (well worth giving them a go if you want to try out some brewing for yourself) I moved onto all grain. I picked up a load of ingredients this week for the following two brews that I will be doing.

- Bayou Brown Ale
- Dr Smurto's Golden Ale

Going to do a stout or two for the winter after these.

Cheers
