Notes

Mash at 153 °F (67 °C) for 60 minutes. Ferment at 68 °F (20 °C) with for 7-14 days primary. Transfer to secondary for 7-14 days to clarify. Use a yeast starter made from a bottle of Bell's Oberon if available instead of WLP001.

Build up a starter of yeast from oberon dregs instead of California if available. Use only 1 oz coriander then.

If you want to make a true Oberon clone check out this page, https://www.bellsbeer.com/news/homebrewing-oberon-tips-cloning-our-american-wheat-ale They also offer a clone kit, https://store.bellsbeer.com/products/oberon-ale-clone-all-grain-ingredient-kit which will give a good idea of the actual grain bill and hop schedule. I ran across all of this in my search so I thought I'd share :-) Cheers!
