So was gonna make a Belgian wit but have decided to flip my recipe on its ear and make an american wheat and wanted to see what you guys think.
Here's what I've got:
6.3 lbs. Liquid wheat malt extract (65/35)
0.5 lb. Crystal malt (10L)
0.5 lb. Torrefied wheat
0.5 lb. Rahr white wheat malt
0.5 lb. Flaked wheat
1 ounce coriander seeds
3 zests of oranges (fresh)
2 lb. Orange blossom honey
1 ounce cascade hops (6.2)
1 ounce UK Kent goldings hops (5.8)
Safale US-05 yeast
So my main questions are should I use the Kent goldings with the cascade together or just do the cascade by themselves for say a 60 minute boil? Or should I just use the Kent goldings for a 60 minute boil by themselves?
What I'm going for is kind of a shock top/blue moon type beer but better and maybe slightly hoppier while still being smooth to drink.
Oh and the coriander will boiled with a late steep addition along with a orange zest boil/late steep and subsequent "dry hop" with the orange zest either in secondary or keg.
Also the grains will be steeped at 155 degrees for 30 minutes prior to boil and mixing with extract, hops, etc.
Anyway hope that makes since. So what do you guys think? Crazy bad, crazy good, or just average? Anything to change, add, etc.?
Any and all responses are welcome and greatly appreciated.
