Product Details

A simple sipper that evokes warm summery memories with every sip, yet fits perfectly into the colder months' standard brewing repertoire.

Wyeast Trappist High Gravity Y3787 is a great alternative yeast for this kit; it ferments a bit drier with a rich ester profile, malty palate, and has a high alcohol tolerance.

Splendid after aging
Killer. Use coriander and orange zest to make this one really pop. The coriander really came out after a bit of time. Even my super critical, hardcore homebrew buddies loved this one.

It's the new house favorite
I added 1 oz of sweet orange peel, 1 oz of bitter orange peel and .5 oz of corriander at the end of the boil. The color of this beer is a beautiful orange/red. Great mouthfeel and the flavors of orange corriander and clove from the Belgian Abbey II yeast was nicely balanced with the caramel flavors of the malt. Very drinkable as this quenches your thirst and then finishes clean.

Gone
I made this beer for my daughter's wedding. It was alongside some big market beer for the non converted. I could not believe when the bartender told me 5 gallons were gone and folks were into the 2nd keg. It was a huge hit. It was nearly gone before the wedding party sat down for dinner. I did add orange peel(no coriander) to the secondary for about 2 weeks.

A++
Added zest from two oranges, and two TSB of Coriander at Flame out. Primary 8 days, secondary 11 days. Tried it one week after bottling. Coriander was a little strong. 2.5 weeks after bottling.... PERFECT!! Love this beer

Refreshing brew
I've brewed this twice now (extract) and added coriander and orange peel both times. Makes for a nice refreshing beer. It even turns out well when you use the wrong yeast by accident! I accidentally used the yeast meant for my stout, but it worked out fine.

Awesome!
This was my first 5 gallon batch and I just tasted the final product the other day. It was awesome! I added the recommended amount of orange zest and coriander like the recipe said and when I tasted the wort/beer throughout the process, I thought it might be too "orange-y". However, after bottle conditioning and drinking the beer cold, it was awesome! I reminded me kind of a darker version of a Blue Moon, if that makes sense. I have many other recipes I want to try, but I'll definitely come back to this one again later.

Wow!
All I can say is WOW! I did make a slight change however. I did not add the spices but did add 3-lbs of orange blossom honey at flame out. It has a hint of orange and real smooth mouth feel. Will definitely be doing this one again.

Superb
Awesome. Better than Belgians you can get in the store. I followed the recipe note by adding some fresh orange peel. I was a chicken regarding the coriander--will add full amount next time instead of 1/3 of what was called for. I want a bit more of that flavor next time. Very citrusy--in a good way.

First time brewing this beer and picked up pre-packed coriander and orange zest and was curious how much to add of both for 5 gallon batch. Understand it depends upon taste preferences - just looking for a general recommendation for first batch.
G E on Aug 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Between 1/2 and 1 ounce of each. 1/2 ounce will be more a subtle compliment while 1 ounce would be more of a defining character in the beer. So I would go for 1/2 ounce.
When adding orange peal at flameout. Do you transfer the orange peal to the fermenter with the wort or remove it? Sorry I'm new at this.

BEST ANSWER: It would make little difference one way or the other, but I would tend to leave them in, to maximize the effect from them. They will not cause a problem to be left in, or they can be removed if the batch is being strained into the fermenter. - Mike W, Northern Brewer
Just brewed this beer had lots of activity for 2 days with a good crust on top, now today seems to be little to no bubbles, crust is also breaking down. Is this normal to see on day 3 after brewing?
K E on Jul 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Exactly the same thing for my first batch. Alot of activity at 24 hours, then it tapered off quickly. Seemed to lack head after bottling too. Still had good flavor and 5.5% ABV with Wyeast 1214 Belgian Abbey Ale. Decided to switch yeast next time.
For my most recent batch I used Safbrew-246 yeast with much better results. Good head, flavor, and 6.5% ABV.
So what to do? I would open it up and quickly add additional yeast, either the 246 or Safale S-05. I have done that with other slow batches with good results. It's better than wondering.
I just purchased this kit, and I'm curious to know what the carbonation level should be. Would it require Belgian bottles, or would a standard glass bottle be fine for this kit?

BEST ANSWER: Eric,

Thank you for your question. This beer would be best with 3.0 vols of co2. The belgian bottles would be great for this beer.

Cheers!
