Orange Honey Wheat
A buddy emailed me this: "Can you whip up a batch of that cloudy unfiltered wheat beer that taste like orange? I love that ****!"
So here is my attempt at an Orange Honey Wheat. Not sure what yeast I will use of the three. Probably attempt this next month. Any thoughts, compliments, critiques?

Looks tasty. What's up with the wheat flour though? Also I'd skip the saf 05, great yeast but will floculate like a champ and contribute no flavor or appearance that your friend is probably expecting.
This is a house beer at our place.
I go the easy but very tasty route of.
50% pale wheat
one jar of orange blossom honey
15g of crushed coriander seeds
25g of orange rind grated from two oranges
Saaz for bittering and one small late addition
wyeast 1010 for a clean wheat to let the rest shine
Mash at 64-65 degrees celcius
Ferment at 18-20 degrees celcius
Bottle or keg usually about 10-12 days after pitching.
Couldn't be easier or tastier.
I have a "official clone" from the brewery shop just down the street from Eugene City (Rogue) Brewing here in Eugene. I'm not really a "wheat beer guy" but everyone loves this beer. A real crowd pleaser.
My only complaint is that it is a bit thin and mead-like in texture/mouth feel but... delicious and very drinkable. The lower alcohol content makes this a favorite weekend lawn-mowing beer. Enjoy! (please let me know if you try it and how it went)
