Blood Orange Hefeweizen
Recipe from "Extreme Homebrewing" by Sam Caglione of Dogfish Head Brewery. The book is copywritten, so I don't believe I can share the recipe.

I brewed this beer ten days ago and today my two brothers in law and I kegged it, force carbonated it and drank it. Fantastic, easy brew. Here are some photos of the brew and sampling:

Ingredients ready to go:

Not sure if this is the same recipe, but a recipe none the less. MAybe gnedge can verify this.

Just to make sure....

The recipe above calls for 6.6lbs of Wheat LME. Usually the fermentability of LME is 80% and the specific brand listed in the recipe is 80%. So, converting this to DME would require 5.28lbs of Wheat DME. Correct?

Sounds and looks good.

So how much of the rinds did you use? Most recipies call for only using the "orange" part of the peel. More like the zest. Did you only use the zest or did you use more of the rind?

I'm assuming you poured in the entire contents of your orange peel steep into the fermentor, bag of rinds and all. yes?
