#68: Weizen 2

The weizen yeast is gettin' old, so it's time to get it in a fermenter. The obvious choice is the deluxe Bavarian Weissbier kit with the 3068 yeast instead of the packed dry wheat yeast. Decided to add some coriander and sweet orange peel to a boil with the golden LME just for funzies. Quick, smooth brewday, though I still didn't hit temps very well and had to ice bath for a while. Going to ferment cool to hopefully avoid bubble gum. OG is a fair bit lower than the advertised (not surprisingly)... RDWHAHB. Not a big wheat fan, but thinking this may be good...
