Default Orange peels in wort

I recently just boiled orange peels from 6 oranges in my wort for 1 hour. I tasted the wort once I placed it into the ice bath and it tasted very sweet and had a nice citrus taste to it, I was happy with the result. I did research after I brewed this batch because I never used orange in my brew before. Apparently You are only supposed to put the peels in during the last 10 minutes of the boil otherwise it becomes sour and bitter after fermentation. I am worried I ruined this batch by boiling the orange peels to long. has anyone ever added the orange peels during last hour of boil? and is 6 orange peels to many?

I've added orange peels with 10 mins to boil.. and they were bitter.. Racking onto orange peel for a few days seems like a better solution.

How much pith did you add with the peels? My understanding is that's what will give you the bitter flavor.

Either way I wouldn't worry about your batch, especially if it tastes good now. It's done and it'll probably turn out to be where you want it

I have never boiled orange peels.

I have put orange zest in after fermentation and did sort of a dry hop thing in an IPA and it turned out really nice.

Depending upon the amount of pith, I think the beer will turn out fine after it has fermented.
