Anyone have a extract recipe for Blue moon clone?
ANyone have a extract recipe for blue moon they have tried?
Is this the closest I can get to it with Brewer's best kits?
The WEIZENBIER kit?
Thanks for the advice.
Look for a Belgium Wit kit; not German. You're looking for something that uses orange peel and coriander in it. Also, you have to use a liquid yeast strain for this style of beer; not a dry yeast. Such as White Labs Belgium Wit (WLP400) or the Wyeast equivalent.
Be warned however it will not taste like Blue Moon; but will be more in line with what it is supposed to taste like. Blue Moon has been "americanized" for the populous. BTW, I like Blue Moon as well so not a dig, I just can't "clone" it. Go to a place where you can actually purchase a true Belgium Wit to get a hint of what yours hopefully will taste like. I wasn't sure if my batch hit any mark until a local brew pub happened to have some on tap of which after I tried their's, I was proud as hell with mine :D
I made a american Heffeweizen and added sweet orange peel, bitter orange peel, and coriander. It came out pretty close but not quite there. It was a excellent beer to drink though:D
So the one I was looking at was a german wheat beeR?
What kinda taste do they have?
Here's the recipe for:
Blue Moon Ale Clone
5 lbs. Extra Light DME
2˝ lbs. Orange Blossom Honey
1 oz. Hallertauer pellet hops (4˝% - boil 45 minutes)
˝ oz. Hallertauer whole hops (2.4% - steep 10 minutes)
1 oz. Coriander Seed (crushed - ˝ boil 10 min, ˝ steep 10 minutes)
1 oz. Orange Peel (zested fresh and dried, steep 10 minutes)
500 ml Wyeast #1214 Belgian Abbey yeast starter
Recipe type: Extract
Batch Size: 5 Gallons
Time in Boil: 45 minutes
Primary Fermentation: 7 days
Secondary Fermentation: 9 days
The pelleted hops I put in the entire 45 min boil?
The whole hops I put in a bag and steep the last 10 mins and than pull it out?
With the seed, I put half in the pot the last 10 mins and the other half in the bag steeping for the last 10 mins?
Do I put the peel in the bag also the last 10 mins?
I could have sworn that I posted to this yesterday. Sorry for the late reply.
Last half steep for 10 minutes after knockout.
Knockout=Flameout, turning off the burner after boil is complete.
Hope that helps.
The recipe above has 1oz at 4.5 and 1/2 oz at 2.4. Doesnt that come out to 5.7 AAU? Isnt that a little low for a Witbeer? I thought it should be in the 15-25 range ?
Am I missing something?
Here is the recipe that I use
