Default fruit beer recipe advice

I've made quite a few batches of Watermelon Wheat (extract) using just watermelon extract as flavoring with pretty good results. I usually use Hallaurta (sp?) Hops....

Anyways, I stocked up on some Saaz and Cascade hops and was looking for advice on a recipe using 1 or both of these hops. Low IBUs and drinkability is the goal.

I was thinking Saaz for 60 (1oz) and cascade for 15 (1oz).......... extract would be half wheat/ half light lme.

Any advice?

definitely. it's from the 'extreme brewing' book but there's a write up here. its an extract, worked really well for me. i think i'd go a bit heavier on the orange next time but give it a go.

it was ready crazy quick too, think we were drinking three weeks or so after brewing. good luck.

Just made a basic PALE ALE, and added I think 16oz 100% pure marmalade at 15 minutes left in th boil. Did notice much orange flavor with a 5G batch.

I also did a 15 gallon batch and added 2 - 16oz jars and still didn't notice alot of orange flavor.

Im hoping the BO Hef might be what Im looking for

With the oranges, did you grate the all the white off the peels?

And as far as more, you think doubling it to 8 or maybe 6?

yup, try to not get any pith (the white part)--I actually just zested the entire thing--figure'd more surface area would be better.

I didn't get too much orange from it to be honest. I'll try six next time & probably rack into secondary for several days along with some more orange/zest--I think that might improve things. If I'm really ambitious I may get 1/4 cup of vodka & cram as much zest as I can get into it & leave that for a week before I add it to secondary.

keep me posted, I'm curious as to how it turns out.

i've heard good things about dried orange peel too, may try & pick some of that up if you're out & about and up for experimenting.

I wonder if regular oranges or those things called "cuties" would work if I can't find blood oranges?
