Was researching this one a bit more and revvy stuck me onto this thread.

Great read for anybody who's intending on bottling dubbeldachs recipe. Turns out people are carbing to that level in bottles!

What an absolute classic clip moomoo!

Further developments.

The missus was just down in the supermarket and she found orange blossom honey for €2 for 11.5oz

Given the fact i couldn't find it for brew day i think i might use it for priming the batch. So here's my thinking. The nutritional information on the side of the jar says its 76.4% sugar by weight or approximately 3 quarters. So if the tastybrew calculator says i need 100g of table sugar then i'll need around 133g of orange blossom honey to carb to the same degree.

Any thoughts on this? Would i need to boil it or can the fermentables be digested by the yeast as is?

I am brewing this badboy up tomorrow! I am, however, doing an extract version.
6# Munton's Wheat DME
WLP320 American Heffe yeast - I wanted a more neutral heffe so that the clove and banana notes do not overpower the orange or honey.
the zest of 5-6 oranges instead of 2.
I also switched from Mt Hood to Amarillo for a larger citrus note....

Because I am going to be fermenting this in an Ale Pale, I bought a new airlock and some vinyl tubing to create a blowoff tube that will still fit....at least that is my hope....

What would happen if I threw the actual fruit of the orange into the wort at some point? should I? If so, when?

i wouldnt reccomend it, if only because it will add chunks to the fermenter and possibly blow the stopper out ( i had that happen using whole hops in a Pliney the Edler clone)

IMO the changes you made will result in a much different beer than the one in this recipe. I wouldn't be afraid of the clove and banana notes, as they compliment the orange blossom honey quite nicely- one of the reasons I like this recipe so much. This recipe does not come out extremely citrusy, and I like that also.

But, it looks like you are going for more of a citrusy beer. I'd be interested to hear how it comes out.

Any opinions on priming with orange blossom honey or does the silence speak for itself!

I made this recipe and let it sit in the secondary for 2 weeks instead of the 1 as prescribed in the recipe. After conditioning for 2 weeks, I sampled some and the first couple of bottles were very very very light, almost coors light, in taste and color so I was a little disappointed.
Going on about 7 weeks post bottling, the last couple have been better. More body and the flavor has really come out. I'm going to let them sit a bit longer and hopefully it'll get even better.

Just drank my first bottle, AWESOME. Most likely best beer I have brewed. Big ups for the recipe.
