Notes

60 oz of organic canned pumpkin was baked for 45 minutes in oven and allowed to cool before added to mash at beginning.

During mash in original target temp was 153, this was actually 148 after grain and pumpkin were added. Burner was cut on to raise temp to 153, while stirring mash to prevent burning grains, but was over shot desired temp and ended up mashing at 159. To compensate for this higher sach rest, mash was left for 2 hours. At the end of the second hour, temp reading was 154.

At 15 minutes left in boil, 1 whirlfloc tablet was added for clarity.
