Bottling is my only set up right now. From what I understand you want to rack to a secondary before you keg to let as much yeast and sediment drop out as possible.

I would probably say black specs would be spices that made their way into the keg.

That is only a guess thought I've never seen black specs make it into my bottles.

Well you did every thing you could and it sounds like the spices still made there way into the keg. Hope it does not ruin it for you. Personally I haven't met a beer I didn't like.

So I have had it in my keg for a bit now and am really enjoying it. I think i went a little easier on the spices than the original recipe. I have to say when drinking this you must throw an orange slice in It. It brings out all the flavor and tastes amazing. Great job and thanks for sharing.

Most definitely needs the orange. Thanks for the comments.

So I tried a similar recipe using 50/50 extra light LME and Wheat LME.

It turned out super light. I think the 100% wheat DME works better. More flavor for what ever reason.

So I brewed this up yesterday. Scaled it down to a 5 gallon batch and slightly changed a couple of things.
6lbs wheat LME
1.5lbs Pilsen
.75lbs flaked oats
.75lbs flaked wheat
2lbs amber LME (had it leftover from another batch, so I just through it in)
.5oz gelina 60 min
.5oz coriander seed 15 min
2 grams seeds of paradise 15 min
1oz bitter orange peel 15 min
1oz sweet orange peel 15 min
1 wirloft tablet 15 min

Steeped grains at 150 for 30 min. Then right to the boil. My O.G. Is 1.070.

I'll keep everyone posted on how it turns out.

Hey folks. Newby here. What the heck is a sweet orange and a bitter orange? And how do you prep them?
Thanks. Sounds pretty damn good!
