I'm looking to get a new brew underway this weekend and I would like to try to get something like a blue moon. My buddy and I have come up with a little recipe and and I would like to run it by ya'll too see what you think. its a pretty basic, no frills recipe. any suggestions would be great thanks.
5 Gal batch:
~6 lbs wheat malt extract
1 oz corriander
1 oz sweet orange peel
0.5-1.0lbs flaked oats (steep @155 for 30 min)
1 oz Saaz hops (60 min)
Belgian Wheat Yeast
My buddy suggested the flaked oats. I thought flaked wheat may be better. Does either impart a certain flavor on the beer? I just kind of want them to give the beer that nice haze. Thanks once again for any imput.
