Hi,

I am brewing a Morgan's Wheat beer right now....The water is heating up. It says to add the add the kit can and malt to water not over 75 degrees Celsius. I've made Morgan's before and thats what I did, no problems.

BUT, this time i bought some dried orange peels and coriander to add to the mix. For this I need to boil it for 5 minutes or so, right??

So, is it OK to boil the kit even though the direction say not to???

Thanks!!!!!

I dunno, BM, those kits are pre-boiled and boiling them again may drive off some volatile oils from his late hop additions. Personally, I'd boil the spices in another container and add it to the no-boil kit.

You're right...I didn't think about them being pre-hopped kits.

Do what Fingers suggested.
