Orange Honey Hefeweizen
 
This post spans "Recipes" and "Labels" so... I put it in this forum to be safe. Please move if necessary.

This is my second all-grain batch... I love the light colors you can achieve, and how the beer tastes cleaner and better than an extract brew. I am a graphic artist, so doing labels is half the fun for me - makes bottling almost worth it, lol.

5 lbs German Pils
4 lbs German wheat
152* for 60 mins

1 lb Orange Blossom Honey at flameout

.5 oz Mt. Hood (60 mins)

peel extract of two large sweet organic oranges (soaked for 2 weeks in Grey Goose)

Used WLP300 because it's the only thing they had. Would have used WLP380, but I'm glad I went with 300 because I think it gave more of a spicy character rather than banana/bubblegum

OG: 1.052, FG: 1.007, ABV: 5.62%

Fermented out fully, dry finish. Spicy orange nose, subtle orange on the aftertaste. I'm into my second one right now, and I love it. Very refreshing, thirst quenching. I am so f-ing jacked that me and my friend's second all-grain effort is this good. This is such a light straw color - a color that could never be achieved with extracts. I'm touching myself right now.

Off to finish O.H.H..... (heh, got my OHH face on, lol) :D

Awesome label! I wouldn't be surprised if people started eyeing that for their Ancient Orange Mead bottles... ;)

Glad the beer turned out well too! :mug:

Awesome label, and the beer looks great to, but um wtf? Cheap vodka not good enough for those oranges? lol.

I could probably email the label sans the writing and my logo... Just the background, oranges and wand. I'd need that Ancient Orange Mead recipe and a promise not to enter the adjusted label in BYO's contest next year!

The Troeg's glasses flow here like the salmon of Capistrano....

Hosting Halloween parties for four straight years brings you a lot of liquor gifts... I'm a beer guy though, and hardly touch liquor. It was the first bottle I grabbed! :D
