I'm brewing a Peach Wit and I want to know if I need to peel off the skin of my peaches or not?
My recipe says yes, but doesn't the skin have a flavor/aromas? I want to collect the more flavor/aromas I can get, so I was about to leave the skin on...
If you leave the skin on, you'll get off flavors and it will be harder for the yeast to get at the fruit's sugar.
Use a potato peeler.
You should take the stones out for the same reason.
If they are ripe, drop them in boiling water for 1-2 minutes (before you cut them up)---the skin with just about slide off. Much easier than peeling.
Ok I understand.. I will peel them and after I will eat the skin, so no waste!
