Default Blue Moon Ale

Posted: Thu - Jan, 05 2006 - 9 Post subject: BLUE MOON ALE

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey Folks,

I am a newbie brewer and have been dying to try making the blue moon ale clone. I have the following recipe, but since I am a newbie I need some clarification on the directions. Can anyone give me more detailed instructions on how to boil this brew. I am confused on what mash in and out means. This recipe does not have OG and EG either. Has anyone had any first hand experience with the below brew? Thanks

AJ

OK folks...........I just fisnished up brewing a belgiam wit beer brew. I am excited to see how this turns out. One quetion tho.......I sealed the fermenter without taking a OG reading. What gravity reading am I shooting for as a FG? I am definately going to transfer to a secondary on this brew. Any other recommendations for this beer?

Thanks!

AJ

Default Final Gravity

FG on a Wit should be between 1.008 - 1.010. As long as you are using a secondary fermenter, I wouldn't worry too much unless you think your fermentation is stuck.

Actually means white and pronounced vit I do believe. However it is a wheat beer as well.
