Default Blue Moon Clone Extract from AHS

Does anybody know if the Blue Moon Clone Extract from AHS is any good? I just got into brewing have done a couple other wheat beers. Also, how much of a difference is there in the extract kits and the mini-mash kits?

mini-mash requires you to steep for about an hour and then sparging it, it's a cinch. Check out biermunchers, I have that in secondary and it smells like its going to be very tasty.

I have the AHS blue moon clone in the carboy right now. Took a gravity reading today and the sample was pretty delicious. Should be ready to bottle in the next couple of days. I think it's gonna turn out really well.

I haven't done their extract/PM Blue Moon, but I have done their AG version. It turned out great! Everyone that tried it, loved it. I bet their extract version is good, too.

I am thrilled to see that AHS makes a Blue Moon clone! I can't seem to get my wife to get excited about homebrewing, not like me anyays. She just isn't a big beer drinker. But she does like Blue Moon. So I figure I'll buy that one next and see if I can't inspire her! I already put it on my Wish List at AHS' website!

I am also going to attempt to brew a "Blue Moon Clone" of Belgian Witbeer on friday, however my kit is from Midwest Brewing. I was wondering if anybody had some good tips in order to help this beer turn out great. Im brewing it with my gf's dad who is a big blue moon lover. It is a all extract kit though cause I dont have the equipment/time/experience to do a partial mash.

Please help a newbie brewer impress his GF's dad with his brew skils!

The partial mash is waaaay simple and definitely adds to all aspects of your beer.
Just heat the water to temp (usually about 150 - 160 F) and let the grainbag set for 45 minutes to an hour - then throw away the grains and use the grain tea as your boil water for the extract. It's that simple.

A friend of mine did one from Midwest and loves the flavor. Be aware that the extract clones tend to be bit darker in coler, but that is really the only variance.
