Do you leave the spices in the fermenter after the boil?

This recipe suggests treating the spices like a hop addition. Myself, I tossed it in my hop bag and removed it when I was done, so it didn't go into the fermenter.

Yeah, I think I put them in the hop bag, too.

As a follow up, I've had several people request that I brew this again. It really is a good recipe.

How did/does this compare to BM's Blue Moon Clone that is in the database?

It looks to have a simpler grain bill and different hops. I wonder how much of a flavor change it would be...

BM your thoughts?

I haven't tried BierMuncher's version, but this one is definately good. I'd say just pick one and give it a shot.

I am glad you like it. I cloned that one myself. Some people like it better than Blue Moon.

Looks like a good recipe. I'd imagine the Cascade does well in a "spice" beer like this. The grain bill's a bit bigger, but mine was designed to be an all-day 3.4% session beer. This recipe looks t be more in line with BJCP guidelines.

I will say that it seems the orange and coriander look to be a lot less than my recipe. Course...I may just be developing an "immunity" to the coriander flavor.

Well ... I made the AHS version today.

It smelled and looked really really nice. Well Done Forrest and AHS.

BM I am going to try yours next and then your SWMBO slayer

I really like the simplicy of the grain bill makes it easier to buy bulk.

I just brewed this recipe on the 27th of December. I can't wait for it to get done. I added .5 ounces of both the bitter and the sweet orange peels to give it a tad more orange/tangy flavor. My only concern is that my original gravity came out to 1.036. A bit worried. How long did you leave yours in the secondary?
