Ahoy, Just wanted to say that I'm brewing your recipe at this very moment. Your numbers are a tad high for the style so I adjusted them down slightly. Otherwise I'm doing it as advertised. I'll report back when finished.

Finished up. I think I over did it on the orange zest by about half an orange. Probably will end up being a great summer beer. Oh well!

Did yours end up taking 10-14 days to fully ferment or were you just being cautious? Just curious.

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner.

I always go for at least 2 weeks in the primary in not more.

Here is a good explanation why.

http://www.howtobrew.com/section1/chapter8-2.html

I will tell you that this brew was much better after 2 months in the bottles and it was probably my most popular among my friends.

So how is this tasting?


PS please rate the thread if you like the out come

Will do. I'm at 15 days today. A lot of the suspendeds have dropped out, but I'm gonna throw it in the fridge and cold crash till Saturday, then bottle. I can tell you the wart was delicious so I'm hoping for a really good brew.

Going to make this one today probably any more on how it turned out? When you say less orange do you mean less than the recipe calls for? I made a orange clove wheat before, but it didnt turn out all that well. I am hoping this will be a little bit more normal of a beer.

I made this yesterday. The only thing i messed up on was thinking it was a 5gal batch lol. So I didnt use all the wort and got it to about 1.056 OG. Smells great, fermentation is going crazy! Had to put a blow off tube on it.

Sorry about that.

Just so happens my first fermneter was a 7 gallons and me being the cheapskate that I am can not let those extra 2 gallons of brew space go to waste.

Let us know how it turns out.

FYI: the amount of orange that goes in this is going to be a preference thing. The next time I brew this I will up the zest by 1 to 1.5 oranges.

I am happy with the taste so far. It took me a bit to get it on tap. I just put it in my keg 2 days ago haha. Some reason when I poured a glass there were some black specks floating in it, any idea what that could be?
