Notes
Jamil's uses Hallertau at 60 only for 19.7 IBU.
3oz fresh zest, .8oz coriander, 2 grams chamomile.
12% oats
1/2 pound MUNICH

Mosher's Celis clone uses NB at 90, Tett or Saaz at both 30 and 5min for 28 IBU
zest of 2 oranges, 1 oz coriander, 14grams chamomile
10% oats
2 pounds Munich

1 liter starter on stirplate 36 hours ahead of brewday, stepped up to 2 liters after 24 hours.

9/26/08 tasting. Extremely light straw color with haze. Easy drinking with a moderate mouthfeel. Aroma is citrusy and very slightly herbal. Taste coincides with aroma and I would use a bit more (or more potent) Corriander next time. I don't have a Hoegarden handy to compare against but it's good anyway. I plan to duplicate this next spring for summer quaffage.
