Default Coriander and Orange Peel

Austin Homebrew offers Coriander seeds and Sweet Orange Peel...

http://www.austinhomebrew.com/produc...roducts_id=468

I was thinking about brewing their Blue Moon or New Belgium Sunshine Wheat and adding the Coriander and Orange Peel to my secondary... In hopes, that the additional flavors will make the beer closer to a Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat, which IMHO has many more flavors happening than either the BM of NBSW...

What I would like to know is how much of each ingredient would I add to the secondary for a 5 gallon batch ?

I also see we have new member AustinHomeBrew here now, so maybe Forest can help answer this question as well...

And Forest, if you do see this thread, when are you guys gonna do a Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat Clone? It's become very popular with the crowd I hang out with...

And BTW Forest, great service, great company, great kits... keep up the good work brother... Next time I get to Austin I will visit the store for sure...

Thanks in advance,

I like to use 1 oz of bitter orange peel and .5 oz of crushed corriander seeds in my Wits, but it's really up to you. That's what makes this hobby so great.

I'd guess at least an ounce or two, but you're right. There's very little orange/coriander taste with most recipes. I've even taken to using 1.5oz in my wheats just to get a little extra flavor, but with little success. Let me know how it goes

hey thanks for the reply... good to know what kinda volume of each i will need...

you use the bitter instead of the sweet..., interesting. to me what i am looking for is more of a sweet orange instead of bitter.

so i think i will go grab a leinenkugel out of the fridge right now and refresh my memory to see if bitter or sweet is the way to go...

thanks RedSun, i just think the orange/coriander addition would really dial in some extra nice flavors.

so according to you 2 oz or more might be the way to go huh?

I love wits and enjoy pushing the "spice" limit.

I'd have no problem adding 1 oz each of coriander and bitter peel to the boil for 15 minutes, and then steeping the same amount in 3 cups of water and cooling and tossing into the secondary.

You really need to get those spices to a boil though to extract the flavors.

interesting, so just adding them to secondary will not get the flavors into the beer that i am desiring...

plus another vote for bitter... i am off to the fridge now !!!

so, i should to add some to the boil and then steep some more and add to secondary.

now that sounds like a plan, thanks mang...

You really need the steeping to get the flavors out...plus a good 3-5 minute boil will kill any nasties that may want to harm you and those you love...

sipping on a leinenkugel now and maybe bitter orange peel is the way to go.

i love this beer, such complex flavors !!!

but i think this settles it...

tomorrow, some friends and i are brewing a samuel smith oatmeal stout clone, but next on the list is probably gonna be the blue moon clone, with orange peel/coriander added to the boil and more steeped and added to the secondary.

this hobby is a lot of fun, especially when doing a little experimentation...

all other opinions are welcome... bring them on !!!

great information man, thanks a bunch...

let me make sure i understand... you add them at the end of the boil for 3-5 mins...

then steep (for how long ???) before adding more to the secondary?

thanks again...
