A Beer as Rare as a Blue Moon

Blue Loon is our nod to a very popular wheat beer brewed in Colorado. Typically garnished with an orange, this easy-drinking ale is packed with flavor. Bready wheat malt, sweet orange peel, and citrusy coriander swim together to create a wonderfully complex flavor profile without being overly assertive. Dive into a pint and you will notice a subtle bitterness and a clean fermentation profile that let the other ingredients sing. Its deep golden and slightly hazy appearance combined with citrusy flavors will bring recollections of sunny days and moonlit nights.

Notes from Brad, Northern Brewer Head Brewer:

“This recipe pays homage to a beer that has unequivocally introduced many people to the world of craft beer. Wheat and barley combine to create a smooth base for the real heroes to shine. Spanish sweet orange peel and coriander provide a flavor blast that takes center stage. This Belgian inspired ale is an absolute classic in the beer realm, and this is my take on it. Although not fermented with Belgian yeast, the characteristic ingredients remain the same to make it an American take on the classic Witbier style. Expect to find notes of fresh bread with supporting citrus notes of lemon and orange and a slight haze. If you are crafting this recipe by all-grain traditional mash tun methods, I recommend adding some rice hulls to prevent the mash from getting stuck due to the high percentage of huskless wheat. If you are brewing with malt extract or conducting a BIAB approach, no modifications are necessary. Have fun with this recipe, it will produce a quaffable ale that you will be proud of. ”

I usually don’t circle back to beers that I’ve already made so that I can keep trying new things but this one tasted too good not to make it again! Recipe is super easy to follow even for first time brewers, and it comes out really well without a whole lot of care or feeding between brewing day and bottling day. Crisp feel and easy drinkability.

Better then Blue Moon said friends

I botched my first attempt many months ago, stilled ended up not bad after four months. I used a little extra orange peel and coriander seeds ( I know at least one came in the kit) and a one lbs of DME to bump up the ABV a tiny bit. I side side by side taste test at a party and nearly everyone liked the home brew better then BlueMoon ( they all loved the free beer!) I still would like to get the fruity finish of a BlueMoon, but the beer had only bottled conditioned for two weeks. I prefer stouts, but many like lighter beers, I made this for them.

Nice and Easy

Had no issues with the brew or ferment. Kegged after 1 wk in primary and 1 wk in secondary, waited 1 more week and compared directly to retail Blue Moon and was superior according to the beer experts around the pool.
