Pumpkin Ale


When autumn comes along, it’s time for Pumpkin Ale!

You can use canned or fresh pumpkin in the recipe and if you want to bump up the flavour profile further, try roasting it first.

If you want even more fun zing, throw the optional spice mix in there as well.

For this recipe you will need to bring your own pumpkin and spices. They are not included in the price.
