Are the gram weights right for the sweet / bitter Orange peels? 5g bitter and .5g for sweet? Seems they should be equal but maybe that's just me.

You are correct, both should be 5g. I emailed AHS and the boil time for this recipe is actually just 30 minutes.

No it will not be that hard. Would be an easy extract,partial mash or all grain batch.

So it seems the major difference is less boil time and half the hops. Does this new recipe put the brew more in line with Blue Moon? I noticed earlier in this thread that Forrest from AHS said he could dumb it down to make it closer to the real deal. Is this what he was talking about? Forrest if you see this could you please comment. Blue Moon is SWMBO's favorite beer and I plan on brewing this November 2nd to give it a good 6 weeks before her birthday.

I know this is an old thread but has anyone tried this using BIAB. If so, would you mind giving me your numbers. Thanks. Looking at doing 10 gallons as well.

Are you planning on doing a dunk sparge or use the full volume of water to start with? For a 10 gallon recipe using full water in the kettle will be somewhere around 14-16 gallons which is more than my kettle can handle.

full volume or as close to as I can get. I try to leave myself a little short then sparge the grains to get the desired volume. Im using a keggle as my brew pot.

I loose about one gallon an hour during the boil.

I find that 8 gallon BIAB sessions are about the max that I want to try in my keggle. These usually start with 12 gallons of water if I don't do sparging.
