With that low OG I don't see why not - you're using the S-04, just be sure you use a blowoff and keep it below 21C. Any higher and 04 tends to throw esters at a level that tastes like ass.

Adding any coriander or the like? I see a lot of wheat citrus beers seeming to add it.

Personally I find it overkill, but a few friends like it that way with a slice of citrus on the glass.

there's corriander in the Picaroons Dooryard. I believe it's in the Hoegaarden, which may explain why everyone else is doing it

I was turned off by dooryard until I added a lemon slice to it.

I can't remember if Hoegaarden has it in it. I think it does, but it's really faint. Coriander is a staple in a lot of wheat beers though because it supposedly compliments citrus well.

from wikipedia:

Types of Hoegaarden beer
 Wheat beer First brewed in 1445 Hoegaarden is a witbier and is spiced with coriander and orange peel. It is unfiltered and therefore cloudy in appearance.

honestly - I get a kick out of the name  :lol:

edit: from the same wiki:
Hoegaarden tradition states that the first Hoegaarden of the day must be finished in three gulps. The amount taken-in during the first and second gulp is of no concern as long as the third gulp completes the pint.

Interesting - so when does the coriander go in? Primary or the boil?
