It's BAAAACK!!! Our pumpkin beer seasonal offering available September through December!!!

This spiced beer is inspired by Tulsa Brewing Company's Old Punkin' Head. The brewpub is no longer in business but their recipe is a frequent request from Tulsa customers that want to recreate one of their favorite holiday beers.

Old Punkin' Head was their most popular seasonal offering. It was traditionally brewed in late September-early October and was available on draft through Thanksgiving weekend or until the tap ran dry. The original "revivalist" recipe is often credited to 'Buffalo' Bill Owens who was the founder of the third brewpub in the USA, Buffalo Bill’s Brewpub in Hayward, CA which is still cranking out their famed Pumpkin Ale after more than 25 years.

Extract kits are recommended for beginning brewers.

Extract kits contain malt extract along with specialty grains and is by far the most common kit type. Extract kits rely on the malt extract to provide the fermentable sugars and the grains are primarily for color and flavor. This is the most common type of beer kit and is recommended for those who are just getting started or those that want to make a great tasting beer without a lot of effort.

BIAB Kits require additional brewing knowledge.

Brew-in-s-Bag eliminates the extract and completely rely on the grains to produce the fermentable sugars needed to make the beer.

BIAB uses one vessel to steep the mash and to boil the wort with the entire volume of liquid added at the start of the mash.

This method also requires that the entire volume be boiled so a 40qt+ pot is needed to boil the wort (pre-fermented beer). It is recommended that you have some experience brewing extract kits before attempting all-grain.

All-grain kits eliminate the extract and completely rely on the grains to produce the fermentable sugars needed to make the beer. Additional equipment is required, such as a mash tun and hot liquor tank. This method also requires that the entire volume be boiled so a 40qt pot is recommended to boil the wort (pre-fermented beer).

All-grain brewing is the most advanced method for brewing beer and is recommended for those that have had some experience brewing extract kits.


We recommend liquid yeast for our High Gravity kits but if you would prefer dry yeast, you can select it instead. Liquid yeasts provide a wider range of flavor profiles but are very susceptible to temperature variations. This can cause problems when shipping during very hot weather. Dry yeast, however, will not be damaged in transport because of weather conditions.
You may also want to choose your own yeast. If so, you can select the "No Yeast" Option.

Ice Pack:
When shipping liquid yeast, an ice pack is highly recommended, especially during hot weather to help ensure the viability of the liquid yeast. There is an additional cost of $1.00. High Gravity will not guarantee the viability of liquid yeast shipped without a cold pack.
