I believe Coors recommends 16PSI at 38F for Blue Moon. FWIW.

I made a rookie mistake and racked into the keg before taking my FG and ended up with 1.020. My OG was 1.050 any harm in treating the keg like a secondary for a few more days, or should i just throw it on some CO2. It was on the yeast for 12 days at 70 degrees.

I'd let if finish out. These are supposed to be light and crisp. 1.020 seems way too heavy.

Been drinking this ag clone for a few weeks now, could be my process but seems to light forbthe clone and the yeast makes it much more like a traditional belgian wheat, not the american wheat bluemoon is. Will try the recipe again with us05

Bitter orange peel can be found at any brew shop in 1oz packs. For coriander a local grocery store will have it in the spice aisle. Get whole kernels and crush them with a mortar/pestle or rolling pin.

My wife volunteered the small hand-held electric coffee grinder the first time we made a batch of this wonderful liquid...and the thing did a fantastic job on the coriander.
