Just wanted to +1 you on that, roastquake. I use a raw spring wheat at 50% with the base malt and extended protein rest between 117F and 124F for 45minutes works great.

Just an opinion but I've always had an issue with BlueMoon seeming too sweet and the carbonation too harsh. Shocktop, Alaskan-wit and Redhook-Wit are much better but I would always prefer the witbiers of homebrewers.

Can't wait. The ABV is low but I think its due to I was half a pound short on the wheat. Taste test was good and can't wait to try it in a few weeks

mine is tasting pretty good 2 weeks in, but the orange is quite overpowering and it tastes a little like honey? Will give it another week
