Here's the recipe of #8, also found HERE:
- 5lb White wheat malt
- 5lb 2 row
- 10oz crystal 10L
- 10oz munich 10L
- 1/2lb Carapils
Mashed at 152 for 60min
1.2oz Hallertauer for 30min
2 TBS corn starch for 10min
0.375oz coriander for 10min
1.5oz Frontier dry orange peels for 10min
Fermented at 65F for 2 weeks with S05.
The use of munich malt was a mistake. I though I was using crystal 10 and after 10oz was milled I realized the mistake, so I stopped and milled another 10oz of crystal 10.
I had plans to add some wheat gluten but decided to mix it with water first before adding to the boil. Good that I did the test because the gluten turned into a big rubber ball and would probably mess up my batch. Lesson learned, no gluten!
The boil was only 30min and did not use irish moss in an attempt to increase chill haze. The beer came out very cloudy and thick, just as I wanted.
I did a side by side test today and honestly, color is so close one can't tell the difference. Body is also very close and taste wise, yes, best match so far.

And the lacing on the clone was awesome.
