Default Adding orange to Wit after kegged

I recently brewed a Belgian Wit and used fresh orange zest. I kegged the beer over a week ago, and while it's nice and carbonated, I can't really taste the orange all that much, just mainly the coriander.

Anyone know of anything I can add to the keg to give the orange flavor a bit of a boost?

I haven't tried it myself, but I suspect you could dry orange in the keg. Put some zest or whatever in a bag and stick it in the keg.

Another idea might be to boil up a bit of water and when its cooling steep your orange in that and then add that to the keg.

That's exactly what I did. Thanks for the tip.

Let me know how this turns out for you. The other day I sanitized some orange zest then put it in a stainless steel tea ball and chucked it in my keg of American Wheat. It tasted amazing for about 36 hours then a rotten taste started to make its presence know. I haven't tried that beer in about a week because the rotten flavor got too intense, if it doesn't clear up in about 2 weeks I'm just going to throw the batch out and start over.
