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

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

Couple questions.

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?

thanks

Steep for 10 minutes after knockout.

First half for the last 10 minutes of the boil.
Last half steep for 10 minutes after knockout.

Knockout=Flameout, turning off the burner after boil is complete.
Hope that helps.
Good luck,

Default Hop Amount

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?

Thanks

Actually the IBU is set to be 10 – 20 per BJCP. I think you’re getting the calculation for AAU (Alpha Acid Unit) confused with the calculation for IBU (International Bitterness Unit). Take a look at Figuring Bitterness for easy calculations. Hope that helps.
