DagoBrewer did you end up using sweet orange peel? That was something i am considering. If so how did it turn out. This recipe looks like a hit. Also thought about adding the spices at flame out because of a lack of french press, like i have in a successful pumpkin ale. Has anyone tried this for a similar recipe?
Hey dwhite, yes i used sweet orange peel and it turned out awesome! I used a 2" stick of cinnamon and about a tsp of sweet o peel and a tsp of dehydrated ginger root.
I will never ever put these spice ingredients in the boil after using the french press for the tea!! It was totally worth the 10$ at walmart for the press cuz i know ill use it again for other recipes in the future.
Ive done spiced ale in the past using these ingredients in the last couple minutes if the boil and could never get it to taste quite right. Using the tea method made a world of difference!! Ive already had 3 people freak out on me about how amazing this beer tastes... And its not even aged yet!!
This brew is worth every step it calls for and then some!
