Thank you for the kind words :mug:

I was looking at your recipe and I noticed that you had a knockout hop addition as well as orange zest addition. How did those work together? I was thinking about a either 5 min or ko addition with this recipe, but I didn't want the hops to have to compete with the orange. Did the hops mask the orange at all?

Delicious looking beer. Wouldn't happen to have a partial mash conversion for this as I am not set up yet for AG.

I would say that the late addition of citrusy and noble hops complimented the orange zest more than competed with it. It was a near perfect amalgamation of flavors in a summer wheat beer that makes you beg for more. Next time I might skip the noble hops in the flame-out addition and stick strictly with cascade (or other NW American citrus hop).

Hope this helps,
TB

I am sorry but I do not. I am sure someone else on here can give you a good PM conversion. I have never done a PM before. :mug:

Sure does help! I might try a late addition of some cascade to see how it goes.

Thanks :tank:

How many oranges did you have to zest to get 1.5 ounces?

I ended up using 4. I was a little nervous that I'd dig a tad too deep and get some of the bitter pith, so I played it safe and used an extra orange. I am sure you could get away with using 3 or even 2 oranges if you are careful not to zest them too deep.
