The pith just adds a touch of bitterness. The ginger brew recipe I used recently called for putting the pith of lemons in for 20 minutes of the boil.

If you really get into zesting a lot citrus, I find the best tool in my repertoire to be a microplane. Here is the actual "zester". However, I like the bigger plane. I find them to be very useful.

Looks like a good brew so far!

I am interested in brewing a 10 gallon batch. Could I just double the amount of water, and ingredients during the 60 minute boil?

Just got done closing the fridge door to let this stuff ferment. I did the same thing using Valencias instead of the blook orange since that was available. First time adding fruit into the wort for me too, but it smelt awesome!! cant wait to keg this one!

I had this beer at the Xtreme brick and mortar shop in Delaware- Doug the proprietor poured me one for shopping.

INCREDIBLE beer. It is number four on the list.

And one HECK of a store! Doug and co. are awesome.

Not with over 8 pounds of malt, and hops it doesn't... Looks pretty good to me.

This looks like a killer summer brew, I'm going to have to lobby it into the queue.
