Default OK, This may be way out there..

OK, so the other morning swmbo and I went out for brunch (a rare luxury) and while enjoying the hell out of a mimosa, I started wondering if anyone has tryed fermenting orange juice. So how about it? Any of you intrepid souls tryed it? Or should I wait for the apfelwein to wear off and just make some more...

Thanks folks

If you do a search of the forums, you'll find a few references. I believe the consensus is that fermented orange juice tastes mostly like vomit.

Using some orange zest works as a nice orange flavor and is the most common use of oranges.

You should search fermented OJ.

It's apparently NOT GOOD, as there is no Orangefelwein recipes floating about. Mostly I think that oj has WAY too much citric acid to be of any value to a brewer other than a flavoring adjunct. Try MAOM. That should get you real close.

There's got to be a reason it tastes best straight with vodka...
