Great base kit for my Habenero mango wheat beer. I just don't use the spices in the kit.

What yeast is used with this beer?
Michael Hrenchir on Apr 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would guess Wyeast 3944 or WLP410 ?
What kind of White Wheat comes with the all-grain kit? Briess Raw White Wheat, Great Western White Wheat Malt, or something else?
Matt S on May 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Matt - The malt is Great Western White Wheat.

Hefeweizen ?
This turned out much more like a hefeweizen in taste and smell than a blue moon / wheat.

True Blue Moon Clone
I brewed this kit in BIAB method with 1.5 gallon sparge and it worked great. Used Gigayeast NorCal #1 and it fermented and hazed up real nice. Used a carb stone with oxygen bottle and the yeast loved that. 2 Weeks in the fermenter and 2 Weeks for bottle conditioning. Fermented around 68 Degrees. Primed with corn sugar to 2.7 vol and the head and carbonation were perfect. Mashed and boiled according to recipe with no clarifier. This beer did not last long at all and I will keep ordering.
Everything included in kit.
Nice head.  An orange slice ups the flavor as well.

Another great kit!
I just finished keg carbonating and it tastes great. I followed the recipe sheet exactly as written. I will do this one again, but I may add a fresh orange to the secondary. The flavors are subtle and bitterness is low compared to IPAs that I usually do. Very drinkable. The wife really likes this one (she's not a fan of heavy hopped beers). I batch sparged, US-05 yeast, 1 week primary, 2 weeks secondary. Ended up with ABV at 5.9. Thanks for making great kits (Pliny is still my favorite)!

If you like blue moon it is very simular, I figured out about half way through the kegbthat I'm not a big fan of blue moon, next time a do a Belgian wit I'll do a more traditional version

Wow! Possibly better than the "real thing!"
This came out very well. The color is an cloudy golden. You can taste the organge and (maybe) the cardamom. It's very refreshing.

This was my first try at making this beer ,I liked enough to order again , it turned out good but wasn't like blue moon, it was a stronger in taste . I like it with food , will see how the second batch turns out .

Fantastic Recipe
I did this one using brew-in-a-bag method, and it resulted in a fantastically drinkable beer. Yeast I used was the GigaYeast NorCal #1, and I kegged after three weeks in primary/secondary fermentation. This beer is a true hit and will be a staple in my kegerator for quite some time.

Orange & Spice - Very Nice!
Wow! I made this for my Summer Beer and it exceeded my expectations. I kegged it at 2.8 volumes CO2 and it’s delicious and creamy. For those that say they do not like craft beer, this is the beer you want for them. Great kit. ??

I just kegged this. AG recipe. Batch sparge. OG of 1.044 and FG of 1.004 with WLP001 in a 2L starter. Fermented at 68 x 3 days and increased to 72 to finish it up. The yeast worked a bit better than I anticipated. Flavor is pretty good, improved with an orange slice. I would have to sit and drink a Blue Moon with it to truly compare it but it’s an other wise crisp and nice flavored beer.

Pretty good
It’s good but it’s a little too fruity for my taste. If you like an orange flavor a lot make it like it is. I’ll make it again and use half of the orange peel.
