Going to try brewing Nilos #8 tomorrow, picked up the grains tonight.
Will try the oats in the boil method rather than the starch.
What style would be best for this recipe? 16A?
Beersmith, at 75% efficiency shows this coming in at 6.6 abv which seems too high.
Was hoping for a ABV in the high 5's
Would I be better off just making this a 6 gal batch?

Thanks Wayne!

That link just took me back to the same spot for some reason. But i found the post number and printed it out. I will make it to the recipe that you had in post #429 and see how I like it. I'm sure it will be the closest i have come yet to Blue Moon as all the other "kits" i have tried are not even close.

Thanks again.

Brewed the original Wayne1 recipe from page 1 tonight. Just a 3.25 gal AG batch. Hit the exact numbers Beersmith said I would with the recipe.Only change is I had a wlp001 here so I used it. .5 oz coriander, and 1oz of sweet orange peel. Tasted amazing going into the fermenter, hope it tastes good when it comes out.

I have updated the recipe file where I included both Wayne's original (#1) and updated (#2) recipes, below. OG/FG/ABV/Color and IBU may vary depending on each ones' system or brewing tool. I have also updated the poll.
Let me know if anyone see any discrepancies.

Thanks,

I had 65% efficiency in my system, my OG was lower.
My tool shows OG=1.056 and FG=1.010 for 75% efficiency and 152F mash temp. ABV would be around 6%.
You could mash higher, say 157F and reduce your ABV to the mid 5%.

I ended up with 1.062 on 5 gallons so I added 3/4 gallon of water and got it down to 1.055. It's percolating away today.

I needed the 5 gal carboy for a Blonde Ale Im going to brew tomorrow so I racked this into a 3 gal carboy after one week in the primary. I cant believe how close the original recipe (scaled to a 3 gal batch) is to the original. I think the only thing I might do next time is just add a small amt of cara pils for a bit more mouthfeel. My wife is a blue moon drinker, and thats who I made this for, and I let her sample it out of the primary and she could not believe how close it was. I brewed Wayne1s original page 1 recipe, but used Saf 05, .6 oz of crushed coriander, and 1 full oz of sweet orange peel. Very very happy with it. This is even after letting the fermentation temp get out of control to 76* I got lucky, it didnt not do no damage. Its good

Feel like an idiot.... I am trying to order some grains for this beer. I am ordering from Austin Homebrew and it appears they do not carry the Weyermann brand. So I have found the Bohemian Pilsner Malt to replace the Weyermann Bohemian Pils malt but can not find the Pale Wheat Malt. Does it have another name that i might not be aware of?

Thanks!
