I brewed this for my first all grain several weeks ago. I didn't use hop bags for the orange zest or corriander. Big mistake. Broke my siphon when racking to secondary. It kept getting clogged and I would have to clear it out and eventually the little clip popped out on the bottom of the siphon cane. Lesson learned. Anyway, even with all the mistakes I made the beer still tastes great. The orange flavor is pretty potent. I did 1oz bitter orange zest and 1oz sweet orange zest as that's all they had left at my LHBS. It's not fully carbed yet. Hoping that the orange flavor will mellow out a bit as it sits in the keg. Thanks for the recipe.

Sorry to hear about the difficulty racking. Yes, the orange will mellow over time.

Tasted my hydrometer sample today. Even with just under 1oz of crushed coriander its pretty powerful. Its not bad but definitely there. The sample also had a nice bite to it. Maybe once its carbed up and dry-hopped the coriander will drop out some. It smells awesome. Going to be hard to wait a couple more weeks!

It took my batch 2 weeks after kegging to mellow out. It's worth the wait :-)

After a week and a half in the keg it's mellowed and tasty. Also, if I pour a glass and let it warm the spice of the corriander is more prevalent on the back end. Muy bueno!

I'm debating brewing this because I already did a Wit this year. How close is this in flavor to a Wit? Maybe I should drop the coriander.

It's more of a pale ale with bite. Doesn't really resemble a wit to me.

This is a fantastic beer.

I thought I should mention, the second time I brewed it I replaced the bittering hops with Nugget (had a bunch in the freezer I needed to get rid of). If you're ever thinking about doing this, DON'T. The flavor profile is way off. It is much more "orangey" and enjoyable if you just stick with the recipe.

I'll be brewing another batch soon.

Having the first taste of this now. The coriander could have been 0.5oz. It has more bitterness than I thought 38.4 IBUs would have. It's not a bad thing but did surprise me. It's a great hot weather beer. Mine is slightly dry considering I mashed pretty high but I'm sure that adds to the perceived bitterness. I'm sure this leg will float soon:-) Have a BTH clone on deck but I may brew this one again before summer is totally over. I'll back off on the coriander though.
Great beer!
