Dont fear the foam.

Also, here's some idea on oranges:
Navel Orange
1 large orange (270g)
Sugars, total: 23g
Calories, total: 132
Calories from sugar: 92

1lb of sugar in 1gal of water will have 46pts SG or 1.046. Hope that helps! I dont have time to do the math right now.

Thanks DK, here is what I came up with:
23g*5=115
115g is approx .25 pounds
That would be 11.5 points in one gallon but I am in 5 total so
11.5/5=2.3 pts
Sound right. My math is typically about as good as my dogs.
So adjusted OG is 1.056 and racking to the secondary came to 1.002.
7.2% now the question is: should I dilute a bit?

No. Introducing water at this point would be detrimental to the beer. Enjoy your power fruit beer.

the stronger it is the less you have to drink to reach your desired effect. so your batch will last longer.

So, this is still in secondary just because I have label removing work to do so I can bottle condition. It's clearing up rather nice. It's a hefe I know but it shouldn't be impossible to see through, right. The harsh twang is gone and has been replaced with an orange citrus clovey taste. Is that typical of the yeast? I didn't add cloves. I can't wait to bottle this weekend and let it condition further. This will be great in the hot weather. Well except for the high abv lol. Just a 4 oz taste can make you feel the effects if you've only had a light lunch. Lol maybe this will be a LPR for SWMBO

It should be impossible to see through, but yours looks impossible to see through. Looks good.

Do not let condition further. This beer is not meant to sit at all, do everything ASAP! If you mean bottle carbonate, then I guess that is a necessary evil, but I generally go grains to glass in 14 days with a hefe, 21 days with a weizenbock (prob closer to what yours is).

Cloves and bananas are common tastes of weizen yeast. WB-06 leans towards cloves.

+1- drinking this one young is fantastic! Good work and great changes.

Bottled. I only got 50 bottles out of it. As I filled and placed the caps, some of them jingles from the escaping c02. I was almost nervous to cap em lol. Maybe I just need more swing top pint bottles, or kegging equipment. It tasted delicious and I'm gonna pop on in the fridge next Friday I think. See where it's at. Too bad it won't be ready by Sunday.

oh bottle conditioning...... im paranoid about glass bombs and the mess they make. after i bottle i box up my beers in cardboard boxes then put the whole box in a lidded rubbermaid box. so the mess if they blow is contained to the rubbermaid box. already had to clean a closet once.. and that was a PIA

I was worried about that once, but not so much any more. Mine are in the basement on the floor so nothing will get ruined besides the box they are in
