Should I steep the oats and malt for 30 min? I’m confused as I never used oats before
Daniela Nettles on Apr 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can put them in the same grain bag and take them out at 170 degrees.
I bought this kit along with another; both DMEs. Now I can't tell what goes with what. Does this kit only use 6 lbs of the Bavarian wheat or does it include 1 lb of the golden light DME?
Jay A Scheerle on Jul 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: You can view/print an ingredient list of any of the kits called Recipe sheet at the bottom of the page along with Brewing instructions. The list was created before they had an option for DME so shows 7lb of LME but that translates to 6lb DME, The golden light is for another kit.

Needs the orange slice when serving
Great beer, great taste, but it needs the orange slice to make the clone perfect. Not all that bad by itself, but the orange slice adds that * and makes it perfect.
Not a hard brew to make, the hardest part was waiting to try it.

Love this beer. After about 2 weeks in the keg it had a strong bitter taste and I hated it, nearly dumped it. But about 2 weeks more in the keg it turned out great.

Just Brewed
Just brewed it today and it went well. OG came in at 1.058. Only complaint would be the bags that the extract is in. Hard to get it all out, the plastic jugs I have found in other kits seem much easier to use. Can’t wait to taste the finished product.

Excellent Blue Moon clone.
As a long time Blue Moon fan, I had to try this kit.
I have brewed several wheat beers over the years, Belgian White's, Hefe's, ect.
This is the best wheat I have ever brewed, smooth creamy and delicious. I added a little rolled oats for body and it came out great. The California Ale V yeast yielded just the right sweetness.

To the reviewer that had the sour tasting batch, I can only say, better check your brewing techniques, this is one great kit.

Results in a beer very similar to BlueMoon
For those who like BlueMoon this is the closest kit to enable brewing of beer very similar to that commercial brew which seems very popular.
