Default Blue moon

Is there a good kit or extract that will produce a finished product that is similar to Blue Moon?

austin homebrew has a clone of it that you can try. i have heard the lemon wheat beer from AHS is pretty close as well.

There is a thread on here for a Blue Balls Belgian Wit that is great. Use the search feature and to a google search. Should pop right up.

I've heard good things about most of the big name online supply store kits. I can't say I've used any of them myself. I usually just steal other people's recipes and buy the ingredients separately.

Just brewed Midwest's Belgian Wit kit for Memorial Day. Came out very well.

Comments I got were that it tatsed very similar to Blue Moon with more Citrus flavor. I ditched the orange peel in the kit and shredded my own and must have over done it.

More information than you can shake a hydrometer at here, including tips from one of the brewmasters who developed Blue Moon's original recipe.

Honestly you get a good wheat beer when you use around 6lbs of wheat DME and enough bittering hops (Hallertau) to get to around 15-17 IBU's. 1oz bitter orange peel and 1 oz crushed coriander. Eezy peezy.

I brewed this a week ago, haven't tasted it yet but it sounds good.

Blue Moon uses sweet orange peel, although i think one of the recipes that a lot of people like in the thread i referenced (nilo's #4) uses a little bitter and mostly sweet.

Also, not nearly that much coriander. Closer to 3/8 oz seems to be about right.
