So has anyone brewed this with Wyeast 3942 instead of 3944? I was only able to get 3942 at my LHBS, and I am going to go ahead and brew with it, but I am curious if anyone has used BOTH, at different times, and found any major differences in the final product.

I think this will ferment well at the 68-70 range....even higher with a Belgian yeast.

I had to toss up between the 42 and 44 so don't worry about it.

Happy brewing...

Thanks man... now that I have a way to accurately control my fermentation temps, I am trying to be more accurate with that type of thing.

Hey BM

Can I use basic 2-row for the base malt on this?

Well I am sure I "CAN" ... but ...thoughts?

Sure. The wit tends to be on the malty side anyway with low IBU's.

You may want to kick up the coriander just a bit to counter the extra maltiness.

I'm hoping to brew this weekend. but, I have a few ?s

1) I just noticed that the recipe doesn't mention irish moss. Should I use any?

2) On my package of coriander seeds it says that they should be ground. How coarsely should I do this? (I'll probably be doing this with a hammer so my options are leaving them as is, beating them up a little bit, or turning them to dust.)

No irish moss for a with recipe. Cloudy (yeasty) is good.

Crush those coriander or you won't get any flavor out of them.

You can also use a beer bottle the way you would a rolling pin to crush them up.

Another question...

I've been having a lot of trouble finding East Kent Goldings or Hallertauer in town.

This link lists Fuggle as an acceptable substitute for EKG.
http://www.brew365.com/hop_substitution_chart.php

My question would be how much will this impact my flavor and, Is it even worth it?
