I don't think you have a problem on your hands...just some very active yeast!
Thanks for the reply, kind of what I thought but I've never had a blow off start so late in the process.

I was wondering. I thought I smelled cascade in the aroma of the beer. What do you think about adding .50oz cascade hops at the last 15 min of the boil?

Thanks

I finally transferred to secondary and my final gravity came in a 1.005. Definitely lower than biermunchers 1.007. The test sample tasted very good. This beer is not going to last very long.

Just made this in my quest to complete all of Biermunchers recipes. Taste great but it looks horrible. The corriander/orange really comes through but it is way to dark.

Welp, I just finished off the last of my batch over last weekend and decided to share my variations/results. I decided to experiment a little with this. I used Wyeast Am Ale II 1275 and added 1 lb of clove honey @ 7min. My orange peal and coriander went in @ 15. My OG was 1.042 and my FG was 1.006 giving me about 4.6% ABV. I let this sit in the primary for three weeks @ 70F then bottled.

The taste was something different than any beer I have ever tried; it starts out with citrus and honey then warms into a smooth, dry nutty finish with a slight note of hop bitterness and toasted caramel. Lots of bubbles on the tongue. The honey dried it out enough to make you keep wanting more. Great summer session beer. Everyone that tried one enjoyed it and asked that I brew this variation again soon!

I just received all of the ingredients to brew this bad boy. I was wondering though if the coriander seed should be crushed, it did not specify in the recipe. I have a mortar and pestle I can use to do this, but I also didn't want to use it and then this batch comes out super spicy. Thanks!

I always crush the coriander in a mortar.
