This was for a 5 gal. batch.
Yeah, those were zested.

I just went a couple of passes until I just scraped the white. It took about 5-6 large oranges to get a large pile for a 10-gallon batch.

I'll second the flour addition. After hearing in on Jamil, I tried it and it works great. Permanent starch haze.

What kind of grain bill do you use on your wits? I usually go with all pilsen and unmalted wheat.

Post #15.

I like a healthy dose of flaked wheat for a lighter, crisper taste.

BM - is this one more popular to brew than your Blue Moon clone? Spicier, more flavorful? Was planning a 10 gal batch of blue moon, but this one looks pretty good too.

This one goes over pretty darn well. The fresh orange and the chamomile give it a nice softness. The only thing really missing is the wit yeast. That would button this recipe up as a competition contender. I'm just too lazy.

Did you just use a single infusion mash? Most of the Wit recipes I have seen seem to have some kind of step mash.

Yep. just a single mash. 155 for 60 minutes.
