Today I brewed my much anticipated Blood orange Hefe beer. I used the following:
6.6 pounds (3kg) light liquid wheat extract (55% wheat malt and 45% barley malt) (65 minutes)
1/2 ounce (15g) Hallertau hop pellets (60 minutes)
1/2 ounce (15g) Saaz hop pellets (20 minutes)
4 average sized blood oranges (20 minutes in another pot)
1/2 ounce (15g) Hallertau hop pellets (10 minutes)
.75 crushed coriander seed at (5 minutes)
Danstar wheat yeast 11gr dry (pitched at 74 temp)
Fruit was put into 170 degree water and then turned off and allowed to steep. Water and fruit was put into primary
Primary is sitting at 63f temp
I did this 19.5 litre, full boil. Not sure what volume I ended up with looked close to 5 gallons. My OG was 1.057 a bit high (took this reading at 75 temp tho.
What do you guys think? I have the fruit in the primary in a bag.
