good call on the 300, it's nice and spicy especially if you ferment at low temps.

i found the 380 gave one of my previous dunkelweizens a hint of apricot. it was quite nice for the darker brew, but i use 300 for almost all my hefeweizens.

PROMISE!

Seriously, if you're willing to share your label, that would be awesome (and save me from having to come up with a label for the mead (I actually plan to make Malkore's version of the orange mead) that I would never be satisfied with now that I've seen yours! PM sent!

Glad the beer turned out well too!

I have some AO Mead, that is going on 1.5 years that is outstanding

So did you just peel the oranges and soak the rinds or the oranges in the vodka (how much vodka?)

Used a potato peeler and took off just the orange outer peel (not the bitter white pith). Put it in a small tupperware container and used just enough vodka to cover it (probably 1 cup?). Left it for 2 weeks, shaking it occasionally. Picked out the peel and dumped in the orange vodka at bottling.

I was tempted to use Triple Sec instead of corn sugar to prime (per Randy Mosher). I'm glad I didn't, as the orange flavor is just enough. Very subtle.

PS - I am in love with this beer. Been drinking it like mad.

Thats awesome to, you are a good designer. I never considered using aluminum bottles though, its an interesting idea with the pool / park issue. Hmm...
