I am looking to brew a wheat beer with MILD orange flavor. Something dry, and easy drinking for the summer.
There are lots of recipes around (I know, I've been looking at the recipes on this site for a week or two), and I'm looking for a opinions:
Yeast: Since I'm basically looking at an american wheat, should I use american wheat yeast, or a neutral american ale yeast, or consider using a wit yeast (since wits are wheat beers with orange flavors).
Honey: Honey vs Honey malt vs both. Add the honey at flameout, at 150-180 degrees or to the fermenter (the threads are all over the place on that one).
Orange: Dried peel vs fresh peel vs a small jar of orange marmelade.
I'm thinking 50/50 two-row/white wheat + 1# of honey (orange blossom?) added while cooling the wort + 6oz of orange marmelade added while cooling the wort + amarillo at 60 min to hit 17 IBU and a little more at 10 min or so. Thinking wit yeast, but still undecided.
What do you think?
