took the toast to 20fiftean recipe and scaled up proportions for new brewhouse efficiency then added brown sugar and pumpkin

justified the pumpkin and spices amounts with my trustmonkeypki recipe. although this beer is about 0.8% higher in abv but im too scared to use more so well see how this turns out and maybe bump it next year.

justified the brown sugar amount with the trustmonkey belgian recipe ive done (and planned a second) - that recipe used 1.125 lb cane sugar so this should be close.

used same hop profile, using 1oz golding instead of 0.5 . need to decide on that too.

prob should look up other beers ive done and compare BU/GU to make sure 30 will be enough for a 6.5% beer?

ok i totally messed up the hops - i didnt buy saaz because i thought i had some but didnt. also the original recipe called for 1oz styrian golding 5.5 but all they had was styrian celeia 3.7. luckily i have hallertau mittelfruh so i will use that for bittering and flavoring in addition to the celeia.

decided to do 45 oz aka three small cans or one big can and one small can. added only .02 in og. worried about sparge but well see. considered adding pumpkin to boil or some other time but even northern brewer youtube says to mash it even if doing extract kit.
