Batch #4 | Blue Moon Clone


Brew Day: 10/06/12

Original Gravity: 1.037

Final Gravity: 1.01

Brewing Notes:

I just got an activator pack of 3942 Belgian Wheat yeast. I am going to brew this tomorrow with that yeast. The Wyeast brochure says "Estery, low phenol producing yeast from [a] small Belgian brewery. Apple, bubble gum and plum aromas with a dry but fruity finish."

Rating (1 - worst, 10 - best): 7

Review:

I love fruity beers. I love wheat beers. This is heaven.

Blue Moon Clone

Tasting Notes:

Awesome taste. Add a slice of orange and people will be asking how you bought a keg of Blue Moon.Distinctive, light wheat beer with a hint of spice. The head is very white and lasts a long time. This is a light, spicy session ale. Perfect for the summer.
