We had an ounce of Magnum hops to use up and with it being so close to the fall season, brewing a Pumpkin Ale was a no-brainer. The Magnum hop variety is typically used to provide a slight bittering to lagers and some ales. We chose to use it in this pumpkin ale batch because we don’t want a hop forward flavor but, we still wanted a hint of bitterness.
This specific Pumpkin Ale recipe is an all-grain batch and can be found here. We just simply replaced the Mount Hood variety with our Magnums. We did end up using our own Cascade variety as well. Enjoy the photos!
