Tried to make a honey wheat tonight.

1 lbs flaked oats
.5 lbs wheat. Both 30 min at 150*

3.3 lbs extra light LME
3 lbs extra light DME
.5 oz hallertau 60 min
.5 oz cascade 60 min

1.5 oz sweet orange peel 7 min
.5 corriander 7 min

3lbs orange blossom honey flameout
.5 oz hallertau flameout
.5 oz cascade flameout

Belgian witbier yeast

OG sample tasted excellent, good honey and orange taste. Dunno how close to blue moon this will be, but I think it's gonna be awesome anyways!

IBU was 17

Estimated OG was supposed to be .051 but I got .074! I think it's from all the crap in the cylinder throwing it off.

Anyways, can't wait till I try this in a few months.

Well, tried it today. I think it has a touch too much orange peel. There was a bitter aftertaste that tasted just like orange peel. Everything else was very good. I think I will try and adjust the sweet peel down to 1oz and try again!

Not really a blue moon clone per se, but very good anyways.
