Brewed this on 11/12/08, drinking now.

I had to make a variation as my lhbs didn't have the flaked wheat. Brewmaster there suggested some white wheat and some unmalted wheat as replacement. OG 1.053 FG 1.012

Marris Otter 4.5 lbs
white wheat 2.25
Unmalted wheat 2.25
flaked barley 2 0z
rice hulls 2 cups
East Kent Goldings 1 oz (60)
Whirfloc 1 tablet (10)
coriander .75 oz crushed and hydrated 5 minutes (5)
bitter orange peel .75 oz hydrated 5 mins (5)
sweet Orange Peel .25 oz hydrated 5 mins (5)
Belgian Witbeir 3944 Sep 08

It is wonderful. It might be a little too clear for a wit but I like it. Maybe it is the whirfloc or maybe the cold crashing.

Tasting notes: It is great with or w/out orange and almost has a hint of clove like a hoegarden.

Next time I will have to get the flaked wheat and compare.

I'll bet you would like to see a picture!
Thanks BM

One of the glasses below is the real blue moon and one is AHS. Can you tell me which one is the real deal, lol

In all fairness to AHS, it was an extract batch and I'm convinced you can't clone this with an extract batch. Additionally, if I did attempt it again as an extract (which I never will), I would have done a late extract boil to keep it light.

Now, I just brewed biermuncher's and it is wonderful. I do get alot of cloves but it's easy to adjust and I really like it! As you can see from the pic below the color is pretty much spot on and i added 1lb DME for some kick. I've done several blind taste tests and several people have picked biermuncher's as Blue Moon. Good stuff!!!
