I'm glad you're enjoying it! It's one of my favorite beers, not only for the flavor and taste but because it only takes 3 weeks to get from grain to glass. Speaking of...I just kicked my last keg of it so it's time to brew another!

I just stepped up from extract batches to partial mash and am really enjoying how much better beer is now with a wider variety of grains to use. I live in a very small apartment so AG isnt an option yet but am working towards it. Can you help me convert this to a partial mash as the SWMBO is a huge fan of blue moon and i would love to brew this for her.

Thanks
Warren

I've never really done a partial mash, and really only did extract for 4-5 batches so I'm not sure if it would be right. I would start with a high quality wheat extract (usually 60/40 wheat/2row split), and then just use some 2-row and wheat malt for steeping grains.

Help me out with one of your ingredients. What exactly is sweet and bitter orange peel? Something you purchase? Something you make?

I pick it up at my home brew shop, but they have it online as well.

I brewed this one today. I needed a lighter beer on the tap and a wheat was requested....My gravity came out a little shy and I boiled for 90 minutes as there was so much water (8.5 gallons total). It did end me needing less than a gallon to top off the fermenter. Do you suggest leaving it in the primary for the full 2 weeks or transfer to secondary after fermentation stops?

Yeast is doing its thing in starter.

Brewing this one tomorrow. Let you know how it turns out!

Wow, can't believe I missed your post. As you've probably figured out, transferring when fermentation is done is just fine. However, Wyeast 1010 produces some sulfur and if you let the yeast sit for a week or so after main fermentation it will clean up after itself. Either way, it will taste great...just a little cleaner in aroma and flavor if you let it chill out for a week.

I brewed your recipe about a month ago. Its been in bottles for 1 week. I just cracked the first one open to sample and it is a very nice beer.

I had the wheat yeast you mentioned but my starter didn't show any activity. I was worried and just pitched S-05.

This leave the beer extremely clean and clear. I have never had such a clean wheat beer before. I am noticing at 1 week the taste is a little bitter with the hops and the peel. I'm sure as soon as it conditions more and settles, I will have a VERY quaff-able beer on my hands.

Thanks for the recipe, I will write back in another few weeks

I'm thinking of brewing this one up next. I'm not a huge wheat fan, but thought I'd give this one a try. A couple of questions though, my LHBSs don't carry Wyeast products, would White Labs WLP320 work? It's an American Hefeweizen yeast also. Also, the orange peel additions, I'm assuming that when it says boil 5 minutes it means add to the wort the last 5 minutes of the boil, correct?

Thanks
