I am a complete Newbie and have never brewed anything but coffee. One of my favorite beers is Belgium White, so Blue Moon is definitely one on my list.

First off: What kit or items should I buy to make this recipe? If this turns out great, then it will probably be my main recipe.

Second: When I look at the kit on Austin Homebrew, I have options to choose. I first have to choose the kit option which is Extract, Mini Mash, or All Grain. I then choose Yeast option, BrewVint Yeast Fuel, Cold Pack, and 1% alcohol boost. I'm not sure what to get, so please help a guy out.

I appreciate any information you can provide to help get me started making this recipe. Keep in mind that my wife will not let me sell one of the kids, so I can thin the wallet down too much to get started. ;-)

Thanks,
TechDiver

Brewed for this for the first time and just cracked the first bottle. Very tasty. My wife is very happy!

I have enough grain leftovers for a couple brews, so I will not order this kit from AHS now. What I need though is yeast - could you please tell what kind of dry yeast the AHS instruction sheet calls for?

It doesn't list a dry yeast for this clone. Just the WLP400 or Wyeast 3944...

Thanks for looking! Hmm, I have about a dozen of AHS instruction sheets for different beers, and all of them give a choice of yeasts...

Yeah, all the ones I've done from them give a choice of dry yeast as well as the white labs and wyeast liquid options, but there seems to be a few where they don't have a dry recommendation - this being one of them. You can go on their website and click on the different recipes and clones, and it though it doesn't show you the exact recipe or grain bill for each, it does show you which yeasts are recommended (since the yeasts cost extra from the recipe and will vary depending which yeast you choose)...

Thank you for a good advice! I checked all the 16A witbiers - none of them has dry yeast as an option. There are quite a few weisbiers and hefes that do call for Danstar Munich German wheat dry yeast... I have just brewed my first batch of beer with wheat, and I used Safeale T-58. It will take some four-five week until I know whether it was a good choice :-)

I brewed their Belgian Double Wit last weekend with T-58. Let me know how it turned out I've heard mix reviews.

Double wit with 14 lbs of grain - looks like Blue Moon on steroids :-) My brew took only 10: 5 lbs Belgian Pils, 3 lbs White wheat, 1 lb flaked oats and 1 lb of flaked wheat... I noticed that AHS offers double yeast pitching - did you do that? So I see our wits are quite close in time - I brewed mine on 2/8.
