Has my primary fermentation gone wrong? Its been in primary for a week, started off stron, but after 4 days no activity in the airlock opened the bucket and its pretty clear, no krosin on top. Gravity going into the bucket was 1.044 with a hydro, just measured it at 1.022 I used wyeast 3942, ferm temp was 68 deg.

Let it go for another week then take another reading. I always wait two weeks at least before I touch mine. Three weeks is even better. So, no nothing is wrong. I never pull beer from the primary after just one week, way to "green" and yeast needs time to clean up after itself.

Well I got impatient, I gently stirred up the yeast bed to re-suspend the yeast, and moved it in the house where its a little warmer. Ill check it again this weekend.

I'm starting to piece together my brew schedule for next year and i'm liking this and SWMBO Slayer. My question on this since most are saying it taste just like Blue Moon is does it taste different than Blue Moon?

To me Blue Moon tastes like a macro brewed attempt at the style, while not horrible it just "lacks flavor." It's been a couple years since I've had Blue Moon so maybe my palate has changed and now I might be able to pick up on the tastes of the style better, but back then it still had a macro light beer taste to it than turned me off.

I'm looking for something that has the orange/coriander/spicy aspects of a Wit, and not banana/clove that should be in a Hefe but not a Wit, seems like too many are "mixing" the styles. For home brewing, to each their own and if you like the combo of Hefe and Wit I say go for it, German Wit!!

just got the ingredients for an extract brew but accidentally got 4lbs of LME instead of 3lbs of DME. Thought the recipe called or LME and LHBS only carried 4lb bags of it. Planning on using the whole thing as the conversion from DME to LME calls for about 3.5lb LME (i think). Hopefully that'll turn out close enough.

Looking good going into the boil. I took everything i could read up on Blue Moon and piled into a big pile of sh!t. The recipe above is what i came up with. Will post the finish product in about 4 weeks. See how this stacks up against all the times I have made blue moon witch is more times then I can count.
