I recently brewed a GF Blue Moon clone and it turned out ok, but I'd like to improve on the recipe. It was a little twangy from the sorghum and I'd like to minimize this taste. I also did not have the pleasant orang/coriander taste, even though I used them both in the recipe. Here is what I did.
2.5 Gallon batch
2 lb sorghum extract @ 60 mins
1.25 lb brown rice extract @ 60 mins
0.5 oz cascade @ 60 mins
0.125 lb beet sugar @ 60 mins
0.06 lb maltodextrin @ 15 mins
0.35 oz cracked coriander seed @ 10 mins
0.5 tsp Irish moss @ 10 mins
0.5 tsp diammonium phosphate @ 5 mins
0.5 oz sweet orange peel @ 1 min
1 packet belle saison yeast
Primary fermenter 2 weeks
Bottle conditioned 2 weeks
It's drinkable and tastes ok, but I would like to get closer to the great taste of the original. My thoughts are to increase orange and coriander additions, changing sorghum addition to flame out, and to consider steeping a grain.
Thank you for any help!
