Wit beers use whole sour orange peels, pith and all I think. So I don't think you're exactly off on uncharted territory, but its very cool that you did this as an experiment. Plus, those peels are always dried, so fresh ones prob behave at least a little differently. The stupid urban legends we pick up around here are annoying and I'm glad you proved this one wrong again.
