It's not unusual for the carb to be inconsistent after only a week. Give them a couple more weeks and it should be better. And if you feel it needs more honey malt, then add more honey malt. If you started with 3/4 lb per the posted recipe and are thinking of increasing it by 1/4 lb, I don't see any issues with that, so go for it. However, if you are suggesting adding another pound on top of the original .75, well that may be too much and I wouldn't recommend it. It wasn't clear to me which you were looking to do.

Thanks LLBEAN. I meant adding a pound total. Sorry for the confusion.

Done this recipe 3x now and the orange flavor/perfume only ever came through the first time. Im wondering if there might a better way to get constant results. Is there any kind of orange extract that we could use which could be easily measured instead of rind?

Going on my third try of this brew. First time was my first AG and had a few hiccups. The second try was dumped due because when cleaning up I found my thermometer had broke, not sure to as when but didn't want to risk it. Right now I have it in my mash tun. Hope this goes better.

Hopefully this will help you. There are a few methods mentioned. Pick the one that seems to fit your timeline.

Just finished brewing this for the 2nd time. I have however made a couple modifications to the recipe.
I did a partial mash but used the weights listed for the all grain mash but used DME instead. Also used Wyeast Belgium Wheat yeast. I did this last time as well and it came out amazing. Had a bit higher OG@ 1.062 but ended up at roughly 6.5% abv. It's a favorite every time I bring it around.
