A great recipe for beginner brewers or even advanced brewers that love an American Wheat, this is an easy drinking summertime (or anytime) beer. Light and a bit hazy, this American classic is a favorite amongst Homebrewers and Craft Beer drinkers alike. Refreshing citrus tones and a hint of spice from the coriander make this brew the perfect way to beat the Summer heat. A combination of flaked oats and flaked wheat provide an impressive body, excellent head-retention, and a silky smooth mouthfeel. With light noble hop flavor and refreshing carbonation, this clone is the original recipe, perfected. It’s a great beer that everyone can enjoy- whether you’re a craft beer fan or someone who just loves lighter beers.
Due to the high percentage of pilsner malt, a 90-minute boil time is recommended. Adjust your boil volume as needed to achieve 5.25 in the fermenter.

Style Guidlines Wheat beers are made with the primary ingredient of wheat, along with other malts. Wheat doesn't have the enzymes needed to convert starches to sugars, so additional malts are added into the mix. Wheat beers fall into one of several other subcategories such as Witbiers, Berliner Weisse, Weissbiers, and Gose. Typically, they'll have a lighter pale color, creamy texture and lightly sweetened flavor profile. A very drinkable style of beer that's perfect for all occasions.

I don't know if it's standard for there to be no instructions for a clone recipe, but any kind of guidance would be nice to have with the kit. I was sent a blue moon kit. The website gave some guidelines for mashing,but nothing for the boil.
