I just used navel oranges. I followed the advice of others here and only zested the orange stuff. As soon as the white showed, I stopped.

I tossed the peel (whole with PIth) from 4 naval oranges into a Saison I made. It was fantastic. Nothing off or overly bitter about it. In fact the keg went fast and grabbed me lots of requests for the recipe. We use hops to bitter our brews... how is this any different???

Don't fear the peel... embrace it! ;P

That's a good point. This one has already been done with just the zest. Maybe next time I can try the whole peel.

Do you add them in the boil? At the end or in fermenter

Many recipes call for the peel to go into the boil
@ 5-10 mins left.

How about adding zest into secondary? I was considering doing 1-2 ounces during boil and then an ounce plus 0.5 oz of citra hops as a dry hop during secondary. Any thougts on how the flavor would differ by adding it into the boil versus secondary versus both? I want a noticable citrus taste but not overwhelming or overpowering.
