Thanks for the recipe!
Now, for the orange, do you use a sweet orange peel, or bitter orange peel?

I have used several varieties. Usually bitter, but I have used sweet. Either of the packs you buy at a LHBS will work fine. i have also just bought cheap oranges from the grocery store and grated the rinds myself.

I would say whatever your preference is or use what you have. THis brew isnt rocket science. I used regluar old oranges from the grocery last batch and it seemed overly sweet at first, but has mellowed nicely now. Not sure if that orange had anything to do with it.

As previously mentioned in this post, I brewed up a batch of this last Saturday - first time making this brew, first time with safale 05 - this brew seemed to have a long active fermentation compared to my other brews of similar gravity but different yeast. It started a strong fermentation within 6 hours of pitching, and it only just stopped bubbling away yesterday morning and started to clear the top surface late last night. I had been hoping to maybe keg it this weekend but at this rate it needs at least a few more days to clear. Not complaining - I can't wait to drink it, I'm just surprised by what seems like a lot more action than I'm used to seeing.

Took a litre bottle of this over to a friends house, who is a die hard bud drinker.

After assuring him the amber colored brew wouldnt taste like road tar (hmmm road tar, good name for a stout eh? ) he said he enjoyed it very much. First drink took him a bit of adjustment from the rice beer he was drinking, but after that the bottle went fast.

I think I'll try this. Summer's coming!
One week in the primary seems short to me but I never brewed a wheat beer. I usually go 3-4 weeks.
Do you see a problem/advantage to letting it sit for a few more weeks?

I wouldnt go much past 10 days in the primary. Its best to get it into a secondary if you want to condition it longer. Leaving in the primary too long can lead to off flavors. Honestly, I cant remember why. A member of my local home brew club left a kit in the primary for a month. He got busy and forgot. Beer was sulfury (is that a word?) and had an acidic taste.

Why not? IT will still be beer.

I'd be curious to hear of the results. Like I said next batch will be with a hefe yeast. WLP380.

It will be interesting to see if the extract brew like this is as refreshing as a allgrain.
