I've also been thinking about doing a batch of this. They have this on the Saranac website
Beer Style: Hybrid IPA/Belgian White
Malt Selections: 2 Row Wheat Oats
Hop Selections: Citra
Color: Pale Straw-Hazy
Mouthfeel / Body: Medium
Food Companions: Bleu Cheese, Poultry, Pork
Alcohol By Volume: 6.0%
Original Gravity: 14.8

I emailed them in hopes they would give me the recipe or at least point me in the right direction. My guess is to make a wheat beer and hop it like you would an ipa with citra. I'll let you know if I hear anything from Saranac.

Here is the recipe I came up with...wife just tried a bottle last night said it was good, not as bitter as saranac. I know i messed a few things up (never crushed the corainder seeds and color is darker than expected.). I haven't tasted it yet because i have a cold and can't taste anything lol. Here is the recipe i came up with.


3.3lbs Briess Wheat LME
3.3 Light/pale Malt Extract Syrup
2.0lbs American 2 row Pale
1.0lbs Flaked oats

I steeped the 2 row and the oats for 55 mins @ 156 F and rinsed them with 2 quarts of hot water. I added 1 oz of citra hops 20 mins into my 60 minute boil and then added another ounce @ 10 mins left. I dry hopped 1.5oz for about a week.

Nice. Looks good from what this newbie knows so far. I'll definitely be trying this. Thanks for posting.

Oh and how much coriander seed did you use and did you steep or boil them?

well i used 1.5 oz but didn't crush the seeds so not sure how much flavor i actually got from them...i threw them in the last 10 mins of the boil. I've since tasted a bottle or two and its pretty good, only thing i'm going to try for is a little more citrus flavor.

Cool thanks. I might have to give this a shot next week. I wonder how to give it more citrus flavor? What kind of yeast did you use? Some yeasts definitely help give a citrus flavor.

I got the ingredients for a 2nd batch, made a few minor changes, useing extra pale malt and going to remember to crush the coriander seeds.
