Does anyone have a good clone recipe for this beer. My wife tried it and loved it, so for her to be more supportive, it would be good if I could clone this beer.

Also, Has anyone tried the Full Moon, its pretty good. Any recipe's for that one floating around out there??

Thanks

Josh

Cool, thanks for the reply.
Bier Munchers is the Blue Moon what ale unless I am mistaken.
The "Full Moon" is a seasonal beer, darker in color, than the normal Blue moon.

I cant wait to brew that one either.

Thanks again,
Josh

When do you add the orange peel and stuff in the SA recipe.

Also, that must a 10 gallon batch size. I copied it into Beer smith and had to scale it down for my 5 gallon size.

I would add the extras at 10 minutes left. It is for the 5 gallon recipe, when I put the recipe into BeerAlchemy at 68% mash efficiency I get an OG of 1.069
