Not terribly long but I've been doing an AG brew every week for the last 4 months or so so we've caught on pretty quick. Been making cider for longer.

I'll be looking to chuck a few beers in that home brew comp. I've got an IPA and a German wheat that's up to scratch.

WB-06?

Reckon some coriander and orange peel would work well in that to - be a good summer quencher! Looks really good.

Going to brew a couple of beers - the Epic Pale Ale clone is getting a second go and the Pohutakawa Cerveza might be a go....recipe on my blog if you want it

Brew day 13th October for the Pale Ale and I'll throw the Cerveza together at some point between now and then just need to find a cheapish place to get the honey!

@MacrosNZ got an easy cider recipe? I've had a go a couple of times but gave up

Graff Cider with Nottingham (S05 goes too dry for me and foams over easy in the carboy) yeast has been the best so far. Chicks like it because it's a bit sweeter then the usual. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f81/graf...-cider-117117/

I've also done the applewein thing but that takes too long. Also have a fermentor full of hand crushed apple and fejoa juice that's been sitting around for about half a year.

What sort of temp did you ferm at? I'm getting some HefeweizenIV Culture from a mate, which would be good with this.

Hey Lunchie, how much Orange Peel? and Coriander you reckon?

Couldn't tell you the temp to be honest. I do most of my brewing at a mates house. All fermenting happens in his garage.

Maybe 30g of cracked coriander and zest of one orange. Don't get the pith (white part) its bitter an might spoil the beer...You could use blood orange and throw some flesh in secondary, after sterilising. Pretty sure there's a blood orange hefe on here somewhere.
