The aromatic was in there cause it's been sitting, but the special B is meant to give it the color I'm looking for and hopefully retain a somewhat maltier sweetness to balance out the hops.
HOWEVER, I've recently found out that by brother is wanting a Citrus Wheat instead of a Citrus IPA. My miss I guess. So.....I'm planning a BIG Hefe with 10 lbs Wheat, 4 lbs Pale, 1 lbs Flaked Oats, and the peel of 3 oranges and 3 lemons along with .5 oz of bitter orange peel. Northern Brewer to bitter with a 60 minute addition and that's it. Thoughts?
Don't worry, I'm still gonna do the IPA because it sounds awesome!
