I say give it a shot. It might not be an exact clone but you might like it better. The recipe sounds pretty good to me. I added coriander and orange peel in two additions to my witbier, I think that was a good idea (15 & 5 mins).

My only thought is: The blueberries probably won't make much of an impact until you get into the 1-2 lb range. Fruit flavors get destroyed easily by fermentation. For your first try you might want to just skip the berries.

From what I could glean from a couple forums trying to decipher this recipe, the concensus appears to be heavier than usual on the coriander, light to no orange peel as the coriander gives the orange flavor, and someone said thay found a blueberry extract that smelled just like the beer. Noone seemed to be saying that they thought they had nailed the recipe, though.

I'll have to see if I can track one of these down, as I was wondering if the blueberry people say they taste was a yeast flavor. Some lager yeasts have what I think of as a slight grape flavor, but might be perceived as a blueberry flavor.

Just a little tip. Toast your coriander seeds before cracking. Just put them in a saute pan and place it on med heat until you get a nice scent from them. Constantly shake the pan so the seeds to not burn on one side. This should be done with any seed that is used in cooking or brewing to get the maximum oil flavor release. After toasting, crack and brew as u will.

Not sure if anyone is still following this thread but if you are making a leinenkugel sunset wheat copy and you are confused on the yeast, just create a starter with the remnants of a few sunset wheats. They have sediment in them and that is what I did. I did not want to copy the beer, just wanted the yeast though.

As far as temperature, it's so hard to say...

I have only been making lagers for the last couple years, myself. I've made Steam Beers with a few Lager yeasts at the low end of Ale fermentation temperatures, high 50's to low 60's, and they've come out quite nicely. If you want to make it as a Lager, 48-50°F is a popular choice for a lot of brewers. I like to warm them up to 60-62°F, before they completely finish, to burn off any diacetyl and blow off some of the sulfur.

Just got into lagering. On my third so far but have done hundreds of ales. I grow tired of not getting a super clean, refreshing beer so I lager. I have a small mini fridge and a fermentation bag cooler so any lager has to fit in a 3 gal carboy in the mini fridge.
What makes the difference between the lager temp 48-50 and low ale 52-60? Are you using yeast for that temp or expiramentation?
I have been washing my favorite yeasts over a few months to save $ and now have about 30 1oz jars of washed yeast (hence the leinenkugel discussion)+ my 3 gallons of lager. I need a bigger mini fridge :lol:

I see. I guess I should have known, I am a big fan of traditional kolcsh and I brew a lot of varieties. I have used 830 for my all my lagers until today, a great strain. My last kolsch used a wyeast 2575 limited edition but I think I like the white labs better. I have really been focusing on temp control and am noticing a much less astringent, alcohol intense beer. I live in S TX so it can be difficult to produce ales at times. I am letting my 2575 sit for a long time so maybe the finished product will be what I am looking for?

I made my leinenkugel starter today. I think my recipe seems more like a dort personally which is perfectly fine and I hope the yeast compliments it nicely. I am keeping the starter in the high 50's for now and it took off right away! I am loving lagers but I can't seem to stray to far from the German beers. Eventually maybe but I like what I like. You can't really see in the pic because I shook the hell out of it but it had a great layer of yeast. Hopefully we get something nice by Xmas :D
