One's sweet, one's bitter.

That's my smart ass way of saying "I don't really know" They probably come from different kinds of oranges.

I see the recipe calls for flaked wheat. Can I replace it with malted wheat, and/or cooked hard wheat berries?

I'm not a wheat expert. My guess is there would be some difference, but I'm not sure what it would be. Can't get your hands on any flaked wheat?

I brewed this recipie using malted wheat instead of flaked. It came out great! (late post because that keg just got in the keggerator)

I am getting ready to brew the AHS Blue Moon Clone partial mash, Should I grind the coriander before adding it?

And should I make a starter for this?

Also, what should I do to change the recipe to make this a Late Addition for the Wheat Liquid Malt Extract, should I add approx 2lbs of the LME at beginning of boil and the rest for last 15 min? or should I not change the recipe?

You don't have to grind it. You can break it up with a hammer.

It's probably a good idea. The last time I brewed this, I didn't and one of the vials wasn't viable. I had to swap some volume between the carboys to get the 2nd one going.

I've never done an extract batch. From what I understand you would add it all at the end, but you have to adjust the hops addition to compensate for the higher utilization. You may want to post that question in another forum if nobody answers here.

Sounds good, I think if I were to brew it I would cut the sweet peel quantity in half though. I had BM a long time agao and it tasted great but recently I had it and the orange flavor in it tasted way to powerful for me.

Alright, I'm a complete newbie when it comes to homebrewing (I've only done 3 batches thus far, all from the boxed kits), but this is something I really want to work at and improve on. The first time I had a Blue Moon I really disliked it (that was back when I thought Corona was good, though). The other night I had one again and it's moved to the top of my list. Of course, now I want to make my own. Can anyone help me decipher the recipe? As you probably know, the kits tell you exactly what to do and when, so looking at this recipe it might as well be in another language.

This is an all grain recipe, where you mash and sparge the grains before the boil. I'm going to assume if you don't understand the recipe that your first batches have been extract. My suggestion would be to order the extract recipe kit from austinhomebrew.com and brew it up like you're used to.

My suggestion is to try it first then change what you want. If you change the recipe, the results are on you. Most people like my recipe better than Blue Moon. I contemplated dumbing the recipe down so it would taste closer to Blue Moon but people like it too much.
