Glad to someone else is addicted to this. I held my temp right at 66-68 for the first 4 days and then let it get down to 64 for the last 2 weeks. Came out great. I accidentally mashed at 158 for the first 15 minutes and it came out maltier that usual but still great.

I kinda screwed this one up - I forgot to turn off the small space heater that keeps my brewing room at 70 deg. for most primary Fermentations & bottling --- so for the first 24-30 hours the room stayed at 70. The highest my fermenter temp got to was like 76.

The room is now a pleasant 66 deg and I'll be transferring to secondary soon

Guess I'll see how she turns out

Brewing this one for my buddy's wedding. I'll post a pic when it's finished. We are all pretty excited for this one though!

Just brewed this up last night and bubbling away in the primary as I type. My LHBS had the orange peel in 1 oz packs so i am planning on "dry hopping" in the secondary with the left over's. I was drinking a Shock Top while brewing and tasted the coriander but not to much orange. My O.G. Was 1.053

****Update***** 1 week deep and checked the gravity down to 1.012. OG was 1.053. Color is great and it tasted even better. Still young but can already tell this one is a winner!

Here is a pic of my last batch.i've up the wheat and oats a bit. Nice and malty and creamy. This pic was the first out of the keg and it was a little over carbed. That head would hold forever.

Would using a full oz of bitter orange peel and a full oz of sweet orange peel at 5 minutes instead of 1/2 oz of each at 10 minutes give this any more orange flavor coming though in the taste?
