Allagash White clone

Needed a good hot summer day beer and was recently reminded of the Allagash White.  Should have followed this recipe more closely since the one I used was based on an extract recipe.  The gravity is a bit low and the real deal uses a blend of malted and raw wheat.

Batch #8, brewed 6/20/10:

  • 5.25 Gallon batch
  • 5.5# Belgian Pilsner Malt
  • 3.3# White wheat (raw)
  • 0.5 oz Sterlings (7.0%) — 60 min
  • 0.25 oz Czech Saaz (4.0%) — 10 min (should have been 60 min)
  • 0.25 oz Czech Saaz (4.0%) — 1 min
  • 0.25 oz Coriander
  • 0.25 oz fresh orange zest
  • 0.25 oz fresh shredded ginger
  • White labs WLP400
  • Mashed @152˙F in 3.0 G water. Sparged w/ 5.25 G
  • Boiled for 90 minutes.
  • OG: 1.043
