Default All-Grain - Lune’ d’bleu (Belgian Wit - Pearl Street Grill and Brewery Winner)

Recipe Type: All Grain

This received a score of 197 out of a possible 295 in the Pearl Street Grill and Brewery Brewmaster's Challenge.

It's a pretty simple recipe, but using Indian coriander and fresh orange zest along with the ginger made it stand out over the other entries.

I used the zest from 2.5 navel oranges about the size of a baseball. Zest these on brewday.

Sorry for the lag in responding...but yeah, this is the one. It actually tastes better at home, but who am I to argue. I got it professionally brewed!
