This. Coriander is tough to break up by rolling. Coffee grinder is best, but whatever works!

Brewing this as we speak I added 1.5 lbs wheat malt and 1.0 lbs oats. Using Belgium witbier yeast.

Mash temp is a bit low at 150.

Smells fantastic. Same as first time I helped brother do his. Will have to see the taste difference with the oats and wheat malt. Fermenting like mad

I had three days of good airlock activity around 70-72 on the strip thermo. Initial smells of banana were fantastic. Temp gradually dropping to 68-70. Been in primary a week. Next week I'll cold crash it and bottle.

Hi all, quick question for kegging...

I bottled this when I brewed it a couple of months ago. It turned out great, so I plan on making it again. I noticed that after the brews would clear in the bottle, to get the best flavor I needed to gently rouse the yeast up. Do you guys do anything when it's kegged, or do you just pour clear?

Great recipe by the way, BM.

Some hefes and unfiltered brews in kegs I've been told need to be roused periodically. Boulevard makes a wheat beer that can get funky taste/smell if the keg isn't roused, which I've experienced. Others can chime in with their thoughts.

Can this be kegged and use that as secondary? Or just leave in primary for 2 weeks?

Just brewed this up today. I kicked up the recipe and went with...

5.5lbs pale malt
5.5 lbs flaked wheat
1 lb flaked oats
US-05

I left the corriander and orange peel per the original recipe. Anxious to see how this turns out.

Update later...

Did you mash all of the grain bill? How much mash water? Flaked grains are some sticky buggers.
